If you don’t have a parking permit, you may use a parking deck hourly pay lot. The Coliseum Parking Deck is the closest lot to the Crafts Center and has a limited number of visitor spaces available daily in its pay lot. Payment is by credit card only.

Parking in the deck after 5 p.m. weekdays and all day on weekends is free – no permit required.
