PARKING

The city recommends using their Downtown Kansas City Parking Map to find parking spots near the festivities. 

The city’s “Click and Park” system can help you prepay for parking in municipal garages. You can check that out here: kcmo.clickandpark.com.

There is metered parking available as well. The city has a new parking app Parkmobile to use from your smartphone. 

If you choose to park along the new streetcar route, you must make sure to park within the painted white lines. In order to ensure that the streetcar has room to navigate the tracks without any issues, every part of the car must be within the lines. Find out more about parking along that route at kcstreetcar.org.
