Accessible Parking
Accessible parking is designated by the City of Nashville on both sides of 6th Avenue, between Deaderick Street and Charlotte Avenue during the times of TPAC performances. Accessible parking is available on the north side of 6th Avenue 24 hours, 7 days a week. On the south side of 6th Avenue, accessible parking is designated after 5:30 p.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday. Violators are subject to ticketing and towing. 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. For performances in the Polk and Johnson Theaters, patrons with special needs may prefer to be dropped off in front of the main entrance to TPAC in the loading zone area on Deaderick Street, near the corner of 5th Avenue.

Valet Parking
Valet is provided courtesy of Parking Management Company (PMC) 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 $18.00, payable to the PMC attendant upon arrival, or inside the lobby at the Jackson Box Office.
  • Valet is available for most publically 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.
  • PMC 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.
