VALET PARKING

Valet is provided courtesy of LAZ 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.

Below is general information on valet service availability.

  • Due to the varied nature of events at TPAC, call us at 615-782-4040 if you have questions about valet service specific to your event.
  • The current valet rate is $30, payable to the LAZ cashier located inside the lobby at the Jackson Hall 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.
  • LAZ Parking attendants begin accepting vehicles at two hours prior to the ticketed event.
  • Due to size restrictions in the parking garage, LAZ Parking may refuse valet service to vehicles that will not fit in the parking garage spaces. This includes, but is not limited to large passenger vans, H2 Hummers, and lifted trucks/jeeps.
  • Unlike valet at a restaurant, cars arrive to the venue at the same time and therefore, are claimed simultaneously at the show’s end.  Plan to arrive 45 minutes prior to event and, depending on volume, expect a 45 minute wait to claim your car. We appreciate your patience while the valet attendants work through the volume.

ADDITIONAL PARKING

Free self-parking is available from 6:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. CT in the state lots behind the Supreme Court Building (off Charlotte Avenue, between 7th & 8th Avenues) on performance nights.
