TPAC is located in the James K. Polk Cultural Center at 505 Deaderick Street in downtown Nashville. You can find it across from Legislative Plaza and one block from the Tennessee State Capitol. War Memorial Auditorium is located at 301 6th Avenue North.
TPAC offers several nearby parking options which include the following.
Valet Parking is provided courtesy of LAZ Parking for select events at TPAC. The drop-off and pick-up areas are located on 6th Avenue by the marquee entrance near the corner of Deaderick Street. LAZ Parking attendants begin accepting vehicles two hours before the ticketed event. Due to weekday parking restrictions, valet parking services are not available during weekday matinee performances.
LAZ Parking attendants reserve the right to refuse valet services to vehicles that will not fit in the parking garage spaces due to size restrictions. This includes, but is not limited to large passenger vans, H2 Hummers, and lifted trucks and jeeps.
When Valet parking is available, you will be charged $30, payable to the LAZ cashier located inside the lobby at the Andrew Jackson Hall box office. Unlike valet at a restaurant, cars arrive at the venue at the same time and therefore, are claimed simultaneously at the show’s end. Plan to arrive 45 minutes before the event and, depending on volume, expect a 45-minute wait to claim your car. We appreciate your patience while the valet attendants work through the volume.
Please call the Box Office at 615-782-4040 to verify if valet service will be available at your upcoming event. Events held at War Memorial Auditorium only offer valet parking if another concurrent event is being held inside the main TPAC building.
TPAC has a partnership with Lyft that provides discounts for TPAC patrons.
New users can expect $5 off the first two rides when they sign up for Lyft with the code TPAC5.
Other users of Lyft can save 15% off one ride to or from TPAC with the code TPAC15.

Complimentary Bus Parking
Groups traveling in buses and 15-passenger or larger vans must notify TPAC Group Sales at the time of your ticket purchase. TPAC will provide a complimentary bus permit allowing you to park close to TPAC on Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Blvd. This permit is to be displayed in the front windshield area of the bus/van.
Passengers may be dropped off, pre-show, on 6th Avenue. Buses/vans will be allowed to stage themselves for post-show passenger pick up on Union Street between 5th and 6th Avenues (parking closest to the corner at 6th is preferred) no earlier than 30 minutes before the end of the performance. For shows in Andrew Jackson Hall, groups should exit the hall from the house right on the Orchestra level.
If a school group is attending a TPAC Education HOT Season for Young People performance, we will provide a HOT bus sign for those traveling in buses and/or 15-passenger or larger vans. Place your bus sign is in the window of the passenger side of the vehicle and look for the bus parkers around the TPAC building to help you park. A TPAC staff member in a red vest or a police officer will greet your bus and instruct you when to unload.
