We want to make sure you have the best possible experience at Starlight Theatre, and that means we pay attention to details! Whether or not you've been to Starlight before, you'll find the parking information and maps on this page very helpful.
Parking Information for Summer Performances at Starlight Theatre:
Starlight Theatre is introducing a few changes to our Parking operations to improve your experience as you enter and leave the theatre campus on Broadway and concert show nights. The lot in which Swope Park you park your vehicle on any given night depends on which entrance you use, so plan accordingly if this is important to you.
Our goals with these adjustments are to (1) park vehicles as quickly as possible upon entering the park to minimize “drive around” time, (2) allow all guests to choose a parking area that matches their mobility, minimizes walking distance and reduces crosswalk delays and, (3) after the show, provide dedicated lanes for Preferred parking areas to allow easier egress from Swope Park. See below for more details of what you can expect:

General parking - $7
General parking remains priced at $7 this season. Depending upon your point of entry to Swope Park, General parking may be on grass or in a paved lot. The entry point you choose determines where you will be parked. For pavement, enter via 63rd Street or Elmwood Avenue. If you prefer to park on grass, enter via Meyer Boulevard.
Preferred parking - $10
The former Reserved “paved” parking has been reconceived for 2015. The price for the newly named Preferred parking remains the same at $10 per vehicle.
Depending upon your point of entry to the park, Preferred parking may be in a paved lot or on grass. We are locating Preferred parking in closest proximity to the Starlight Theatre entry gate nearest your point of entry to Swope Park.
