Accessible parking is available on the north side of 6th Avenue 24 hours, 7 days a week. For performances in Andrew Jackson Hall, patrons with special needs may prefer to be dropped off on the corner of Union Street and 6th Avenue.

Eagle Parking
Valet Parking
Valet is provided courtesy of Eagle Parking for ticketed events at TPAC. The drop-off and pick-up areas are located on 6th Avenue by the marquee entrance to TPAC near the corner of Deaderick Street.

The following points are a general guide to valet service availability. However, due to the varied nature of events at TPAC, please call us at (615) 782-4040 if you have questions about valet service specific to your event.

  • The current valet rate is $20.00, payable to the Eagle Parking attendant upon arrival, or inside the lobby at the Jackson Box Office.
  • Valet is available for most publicly ticketed events at TPAC (Andrew Jackson Hall, James K. Polk Theater, Andrew Johnson Theater).
  • Valet is typically only available for ticketed events at War Memorial Auditorium when there is another concurrent event inside the main TPAC building.
  • Due to weekday parking restrictions, Valet services are not available for weekday matinee performances.
  • Eagle Parking attendants begin accepting vehicles at 90 minutes prior to the ticketed event.
  • Because events dismiss patrons all at once, there is sometimes a volume delay for retrieving vehicles after the event. We appreciate your patience while the valet attendants work through the volume.
Prepaid Parking:
Go ahead and pay for your valet service at the same time you purchase your tickets. Prepaid valet vouchers speed up the drop off process and allows you to get to your seat quicker. Vouchers can be used for any publicly ticketed event at TPAC where Eagle Parking is operating valet service. Click here to purchase today! Valet parking also is provided by Eagle Parking. See below for details.
