What to Expect at Moving Day

Participants are invited to put on their Moving Day gear and join us in person at Moving Day Orange County. This year’s event will put our community’s energy on full display as we celebrate movement together.

Moving Day is more than just a walk! Bring your friends and family to exercise, learn about Parkinson’s resources, take part in our signature We Move Ceremony, and, of course, enjoy the Moving Day Walk. You don’t want to miss the inspiring day we have planned for you!

Moving Day will take place rain or shine. Check the weather forecast to prepare accordingly. Should conditions warrant any change, we will announce it via email and the Moving Day website.

Event Highlights

Date: Sunday, May 19th, 2024
Activities Begin: 9am
Location: Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Costa Mesa

Location & Parking

Moving Day Orange County will take place at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, located at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa, CA 92626. There will be directional signage as you approach the parking area.

PARKING AT SEGERSTROM – $15 (cash or card)
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 (see the black star on map below), and the walk from the structure to the event site is very short.

As you enter from those streets you will see a large circular fountain, you may also drop anyone off here before you park if you would like (see the blue star on map).

This is the parking location we most recommend. It is $15, which can be paid via cash or card.

If you prefer to not pay for parking, we have secured parking lot space at South Coast Plaza. Moving Day participants are only permitted to park in the lot indicated with the red star on the map below – the lot at the corner of Bristol and Sunflower, in the parking spaces closest to Sunflower. To get to the event site from this lot, you will walk down Bristol, and turn left on Town Center Drive. This is about a quarter mile walk. Please walk carefully and be cautious of passing traffic. (If questioned by any South Costa Plaza security staff, this parking was approved by Natasha).


Check-in begins at 8:45 am. Visit the check-in/registration area to grab your event program, drop off donations and pick up your Moving Day Rewards if you’ve earned Moving Day fundraising rewards. We highly encourage online donations before the event. Don’t forget that all participants must register at beforehand to avoid on-site registration paperwork.

Restrooms will be available on-site in the plaza.


Complimentary bottled water and a small snacks will be available onsite for all event participants, courtesy of Target, our in-kind donor. If desired, additional food may be purchased from the Segerstrom Center Café, which is located in the plaza and opens at 11:30 am.


Friendly dogs are allowed if they are kept on a leash for the entire event and cleaned up after. A waiver must be signed at the Registration/Check-In Tent.
