The process of paying for parking has changed at our venue. The cost remains $7. However, no attendant will be there to take your money as you enter or exit. Instead, you will pay by automated machines(cash or credit) while at the event anytime upon arriving or prior to leaving. You will get a ticket from a dispenser upon entering lot. You will need to take your ticket with you into the event. There will be a machine in the lobby and one outside by East/West entrance that you can insert your ticket and pay the $7 to get it validated. When you leave Vets parking lot, you will insert the validated ticket into the machine at exit. Wait for the ticket to come back out and when you grab it the arm will open for you to leave.

You can validate your ticket at any point during the day. You do not have to wait and do it when you are leaving. We suggest paying when you arrive to avoid delay in leaving the event. One suggestion also might be that once you validate your ticket go put it in your car so you will know where it is when the craziness of packing up occurs. Parking across the street at COSI Lot remains $5 cash that you pay upon entry.
