The Denver Performing Arts Complex Garage **ARRIVE EARLY!**
The garage is often full one hour prior to the performance. Please note: an early arrival will afford you plenty of time for parking and finding your seats. All evening shows start promptly at 7:30 pm. All matinees begin at 2:00 pm.
As of July 2009, rates at the complex parking garage have increased. After completing an area parking study, Central Parking and Denver Public Works – the managers and owners of the parking garage – determined that a slight raise in parking fees would be necessary in order to maintain the level of quality and service in a changing industry. Please be aware of the new pricing structure when parking at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
