EVENT PARKING at Walton Arts Center

In an effort to make parking easier during our busiest times, event parking will be available in the parking garage and in the main parking lot across the street from Walton Arts Center (corner of West Ave. and Dickson St.). Ticketholders will be notified by email when event parking is in place. Please make sure we have your correct email address for notification purposes.  When event parking is activated, the fee to enter the lot will be $5 per car, CASH ONLY. Guests will receive an entry ticket upon payment which is good for the entire night. You are NOT required to place the ticket on your vehicle’s dash, as enforcement officers are able to tell which spots are paid and/or unpaid. Tickets will be issued for cars parked in unpaid spots.

If event parking is not in place, this lot will be CITY METERED PARKING*. Details below.

If you have any questions about this process, contact the box office at 479-443-5600.

Please note - Event Parking will take place in the large lot directly across from Walton Arts Center and the Spring Street Parking Deck.  All other nearby lots will operate as follows:

With the exception of small private lots, all lots within a one-two block radius of Walton Arts Center's Fayetteville campus charge for parking AFTER 2PM each day. Also, all street parking is either paid or residential. Free parking may be available in private lots within a 3-7 block radius; please obey the signs posted in these lots.


City metered parking will operate on a "Pay as you Stay" system. You must prepay for your parking space. If at any time you want to add more time to your space, you can visit any of the metered parking pay stations (indicated on the map below as a black dot). You can also use the "Pay by Phone" system.   To sign up for a free Pay-By-Phone account, you can register your cell phone number by visiting https://www.verrus.com/verrus/SignUp.aspx  or by calling 1-888-450-PARK (7275). 

Note: There are other paid lots within a one-two block radius of Walton Arts Center, including The Deck at the Dickson. These rates are set by the lot owners.
