Parking Options

There are two parking lots near the Moving Day® Chicago event site as well as limited street parking.

The Chicago History Museum is offering a discounted parking rate of $9 for Moving Day® Participants. The Museum’s parking lot is located at 1730 N. Stockton Drive (North of La Salle Street). If you park at the Chicago History Museum lot, you must obtain a parking validation ticket from the Moving Day registration tent in order to receive the discount.

The Lincoln Park Zoo lot parking entrance is located on Fullerton Ave. and Cannon Street. No parking discount will be offered at the zoo lot so daily rates will apply. If you park in the Lincoln Park Zoo lot, you will want to park closer to the lot’s exit after passing the zoo to be near the Moving Day® Event space.

After dropping off your guest you may proceed to park in the Lincoln Park Zoo lot however standard rates will apply.
