There are multiple parking options available for your event at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. 

The CMCC parking lot adjacent to the facility may be available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking availability is subject to change, based on event times and the number of events in the building. Reserved parking in the CMCC lot can only be provided if the entire facility is contracted for your event. Parking in the rear lot behind the CMCC is not permitted.

Pay-for-Parking garages are open to the public and operated by other organizations, so availability is not guaranteed, however your event manager can help reserve parking passes or a garage buyout if available. Customers can pay by cash or credit card. Contact your event manager for garage event parking rates.

Additionally, metered parking is available along many of the streets around the facility. Click the image below to download and print as a PDF.
