Paid Parking 

Parking for events at the Berglund Center will require a $10 advanced parking pass. Advanced parking passes can be purchased at the box office or online on the event page until the day of the show. If you choose not to purchase an advance parking pass, based on availability, parking can be purchased at lot entry for $10 cash only.

Parking Accommodations

Up to 1,400 vehicles on average may be accommodated in a well-lit parking lot. For evenings with major and multiple events, shuttle buses may run from area parking garages.

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available for guests with special needs and is easily accessible in parking lot A, in the front of the Berglund Center. Ramps are located between the Coliseum and Performing Arts Theatre on the plaza and adjacent to the Special Events Center. A Genie personal lift with a height of 36 inches is available for stage access with advanced notice. For further information regarding accessible parking, accessible routes and accessible parking see the Guest Guidelines.


Shuttle buses run continually before and after the event until all guests have been picked up and returned to the garage. Please check the event website prior to coming to your event or call the Berglund Center info line at 540-853-LIVE (5483) to see if shuttles will be running.

Camping Accommodations

A limited number of guests with campers may be accommodated. Utilities are not available. All camping is 1st-come, 1st-serve, cash, or credit cards only. No checks.

Free Parking

You have the option of parking at no charge in a nearby parking garage from which you can walk to the Berglund Center. In the case of a larger show where parking sells out, we will be running free shuttles from the Elmwood Park Garage to the facility as an overflow parking option.

The Elmwood Park Garage located at the corner of Williamson Road and Tazewell Avenue is the primary parking garage utilized. To access the Elmwood Park Garage on Williamson Road, take the Elm Avenue Exit (Exit 6) off of Interstate 581 and follow the garage directional signs.
