Parking

The Ovens Auditorium parking lots typically open two hours prior to the event. Parking rates vary for each event, but cash and credit (Discover, Mastercard and VISA) are accepted.

To reduce traffic congestion, Ovens Auditorium suggests that our guests arrive one hour prior to the event start time.
