PARKING AT SEGERSTROM – $10

Parking at the Segerstrom Center’s Center Tower Parking Structure is the closest and most convenient place to park.  Segerstrom is located at 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, 92626.  Their lot can be accessed from either Town Center Drive via Bristol or Park Center Drive via Sunflower, and the walk from the structure to the event site is very short.

This is the parking location we most recommend but be advised that it is $10 and is CASH ONLY, pay upon entrance.

FREE PARKING

If you prefer to not pay for parking, we have secured a free lot, generously donated by Experian.  The Experian structure is located at 475 Anton Blvd, Costa Mesa, 92626.  This parking is free but be advised that it is a about a half mile walk to/from the event site at the Segerstrom Center!

From Anton Blvd, turn on to Experian Way, across from the Enclave apartments. Continue towards the parking structure. Visitors can park on any floor. The elevator is on the northeast side of the structure.

To walk back to the Segerstrom Center: exit parking structure to Anton Blvd and walk left (towards Enclave Apartment Homes sign).  Continue on Anton, you will pass Flower Street, keep walking and then turn right on Ave of the Arts, which will lead to the plaza on your left.  These streets are typically quiet but please walk carefully and watch for traffic.

DROP OFF:

With either parking option, you are able to drop off anyone who would like to avoid walking.  The drop off location is the large fountain at the Plaza entrance and can be reached via Town Center Drive or Park Center Drive.
