Parking will be available at the Convention Center Parking garage and the Union Plaza Transit Terminal garage with additional parking available at the Mills Parking Garage.

Also keep in mind that there will be increased security screenings as well. Security screenings will be in place to ensure guest safety. All patrons and their property are subject to search as a condition to entry in the event.  Bags larger than 12’ x 12” x 6”, weapons or other prohibited items will not be allowed inside the venue.

Show organizers also recommend that “Will Call” tickets be picked up one hour prior to showtime with a valid ID.
