Commonly used by Center patrons and conveniently located across from the ticket office entrance, the Green Ramp will now accept credit cards in addition to cash.

Valet Parking

Valet parking is available for most public ticketed events for a fee of $12 (cash or credit card). This service is available beginning one hour prior to all performances in Thrivent Financial Hall.

Effective July 1, 2013, the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center will no longer offer complimentary accessible valet parking. Anyone who wishes to use valet service will be charged a nominal fee (cash or credit card).


Accessible Parking

Complimentary accessible parking is available for all City of Appleton street parking stalls and parking ramps for cars displaying valid disabled parking license plate or placard.

Patrons with accessible needs are welcome to use the Drop Off at the Valet Entrance to have closer access to the doors without using the valet service to park.


Bus Parking

For public performances, buses will be assigned a specific parking spot in the immediate vicinity of the Center and meters will be marked “no parking,” allowing for bus drop off and pick up. The bus or buses may stay parked in their assigned spot for the duration of the show. Depending on how many buses are expected, the assigned spot may be on College Avenue, Division Street or Washington Street.

For daytime education series performances, all school buses are instructed to park in the lot directly behind the Center. Call the group sales department at (920) 730-3786 for more information.
