Where do I park on race day?

Arriving by Car

Race Day Parking at Seattle Center will be available at the Mercer Street Parking Garage, the 5th Avenue North Parking Garage and the 1st Avenue North Parking Garage. After 6:30am the 5th Avenue Garage can be accessed from Denny Way by going northbound on Taylor and West on Harrison. Parking will be $15 per car. Having exact change will help expedite the process.

The Mercer St. exit both Northbound and Southbound will be highly congested. We recommend considering the following alternatives:

Southbound: Pass the Mercer Street exit and exit at Exit 166 (Stewart St. / Denny Way) and approach Seattle Center via Denny Way or exit at Exit 167 (Union St) and approach Seattle Center northbound through downtown.
Northbound: Exit the freeway prior to Mercer Street and exit at Exit 164A (Dearborn St. / James St. / Madison St.) or Exit 165 (Seneca St.) and approach Seattle Center through downtown.

There are numerous other parking options in the area. Here's a map of additional garages. Remember that unpaid parking is available on the city streets on Sundays. If parking on the street, please make sure you are in a legal parking space.
