Parking Advisory: Evening Football Games
Saturday, October 6 | 7:00 pm kick-off
Please be advised that Cal has evening football games scheduled for 7pm this Saturday. Parking will be tight in the Downtown on both of these nights. Most of the arts district has scheduled events that night. We also expect our regular business at restaurants, movie theaters, etc.
Please carpool or take alternative transportation. Also, if you decided to drive, please note that the City will have higher event pricing ($20) at the Center and Oxford Street garages until kickoff time, to encourage space being available later for regular Downtown patrons.
Also, please note a list of downtown parking resources on our website at: Downtown Parking Resources.
