An experience at the Kauffman Center begins the moment you arrive, with a convenient, well-lit parking garage, owned and operated by the City of Kansas City, Missouri. The garage is directly attached to the Kauffman Center just south of the building with multiple access points to surrounding streets.
Parking for performance events is $10 cash at the Arts District Garage. On non-event days, parking is free for the first 30 minutes and $3 for any duration beyond 30 minutes. Garage parking is also available at the Webster Garage located at 17th & Wyandotte. Additionally, valet parking service is available on performance evenings for $20 cash.
Pre-purchased parking is also available through our website or by calling the box office at 816.994.7222. Pre-purchased parking is available 24 hours or more in advance of each performance. The cost is $10 for the Arts District Parking Garage and $18 for valet service. Pre-purchasing parking guarantees a reserved spot in the garage, even if the garage sells out.
