WHEN TO ARRIVE

Parking lots open for shows 2 hours before event door time. Traffic Control will guide you to a parking space after entering the park. We recommend arriving early to avoid traffic and ensure you have plenty of time to get to the venue. Vehicles parked incorrectly or left overnight (not relocated prior to 10 a.m. the following day) may be ticketed or towed.

Depending on where you are directed to park, you may have to hike. Wear comfortable walking shoes, as routes from parking lots to the gates may be partially dirt, uphill and sometimes lengthy in distance. Dependent on arrival times, overflow parking will be directed to Jurassic lot located one mile from the South Gate. We encourage early arrival times or carpooling to avoid long distance parking.

Please help Red Rocks and the urban corridor stay green by limiting the number of vehicles traveling to the park and amphitheatre. We recommend carpooling to Red Rocks and taking advantage of the benefits so you can save money on gas and help take care of the surrounding environment – not to mention cutting down on pre- and post-show traffic jams!

Drop-off and Pickup

Due to limited space in the park, specific areas have been designated for patron drop-off and pickup. Please drive cautiously as you may experience guests walking through the roads and trails.

There are four preferred drop-off locations for patrons being dropped off by parents or other non-commercial vehicle drivers:

  • Upper South Lot – Accessible drop-off point for patrons requiring the free Accessible Shuttle or those who are seated in rows 1 – 36. Patrons who wish to take the Accessible shuttle and require use of a wheelchair will be asked to present a Row 1 ticket to gain access to shuttle. All other patrons who require the use of a wheelchair must enter the venue from the Top Circle Lot.
  • Top Circle Lot – Accessible drop-off point (seating in rows 37 – 70)
  • Trading Post – Preferred Lyft / ride share & Taxi drop-off point
  • East Stairs – Preferred drop-off point if patrons do not require the features of the free Accessible shuttle services and are seated in rows 1-36. This drop off point is located along Ship Rock Road at the Half Moon Lot prior to the East Stairs.

For pickup, parents and friends of concertgoers should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the end of the show and communicate where they plan to meet. When the pick-up area on the south side of Trading Post Road is at capacity, vehicles will not be allowed in. If pick-up area is at capacity when you arrive, please speak with Traffic Control Staff so that they can direct you to the closest available location, or park in an available space and have your guest come to you. Do not stop on the road or impede traffic and follow the direction of the Traffic Control staff. A phone recording with approximate event end time is updated daily at 720-865-2494.
