Any tips for parking?
The biggest tip is to arrive early. Our lower level booths open at 9 am giving you a chance to shop before the upper level opens at 10 am.  There will be shuttles running from the remote parking lots located on the south side of College Ave starting at 5:30 pm on Thursday night  and run the duration of the show. Also, try coming during our slower times, Thursday evening or Sunday afternoon. 

Can I drop people off at the door?

Yes.  You can drop off at either the circle drive on College Ave (upper level) or the south side of the building off 110th St (lower level).  Will-call is located on the lower level.  If dropped off on the upper level be sure to have a ticket it hand.  Tickets will be available to purchase at both entrances.
