How to Get There


By Car

There is no event parking on the surrounding streets around Snug Harbor Cultural Center. If you wish to drive, there are two parking options:

1. On-site VIP Parking ($20): There is limited VIP parking at Snug Harbor to accommodate approximately 50 passenger vehicles. If you would like to park on-site, please purchase VIP parking tickets when purchasing your event tickets. These will not be sold at the event and must be pre-purchased in advance. Since the number of on-site parking tickets is limited each day, make sure you buy your ticket ASAP before they sell out.

2. Empire Outlets Parking Garage ($10): We have partnered with Empire Outlets parking garage at 155 Richmond Terrace to offer guests general event parking with complimentary round trip shuttle bus service to/from Snug Harbor.

Both parking ticket options are purchased on Showclix.
