7. Where do guest park?
It’s the most common question we hear from people planning book our venue. We are a downtown facility. The city of Dayton owns most of the parking or the parking lots are privately owned. On-street parking is available for free - evenings & weekends. Parking meters are enforced from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday - Friday.
There are four (4) parking lots surrounding the venue & also one (1) adjacent lot directly across the street available for an additional charge.
