Parking at the Washington State Convention Center

The Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) operates two on-premise parking garages. Parking is generally provided on a first-come, first-served basis. You will take a parking ticket as you enter the garage. Keep this ticket with you after you leave your vehicle. Prior to returning to your vehicle, insert your ticket into one of the automated pay stations or take to the central cashier kiosk located on Level 3 of WSCC. Upon payment, both the automated pay stations and the cashier will validate your ticket and return it to you. As you leave the garage, insert your validated ticket (arrow and number side of ticket facing up) into the machine, which opens the exit gate.

The Main Garage can be accessed from 8th Avenue between Seneca and Pike Streets. The standard daily hours of operation are 5:30 AM – midnight. Parking spaces for the disabled are located at the end of Aisle F on the Blue Level of the garage. Use the adjacent blue ramp to enter WSCC. (There is no elevator access inside the Main Garage.) As you enter WSCC from the Main Garage, you will be on Level 3. An accessible elevator is on your right hand side, adjacent to Room 310.

The Freeway Park Garage entrance is located on Hubbell Place between Pike Street and Seneca Street. The standard daily hours of operation are 6 AM – 8 PM. There are four parking spaces for the disabled on each of the four levels, located near the elevators. If wheelchair accessibly is needed, take the elevator to the PARK Level. As you exit the elevator, you will turn to the right and proceed across (uncovered) Freeway Park Plaza to the level four entrance of WSCC.
