Holiday Parking Announcement

The San Francisco Symphony and Civic Center organizations understand that parking before performances can be a challenge. In a partnership with SFMTA and the Civic Center Community Benefit District group, arts presenters in the area are pleased to bring back the $5 Event Rate program at the Civic Center Parking Garage.

Pedestrian and vehicle safety are a priority for our patrons. Several improvements have been made to this parking garage including additional security guards in the elevator lobby Tuesday-Saturday, improved stairwell lighting, clear directional signage inside the garage, and fully operational elevators.

We encourage patrons to take advantage of this special parking rate on the dates below, as large crowds are expected due to multiple events held simultaneously at the venues in the Civic Center district. Additionally, it is important to note that the Performing Arts Garage rate on these evenings will be $20.
