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. CMCC is not responsible for damage or theft in the lot. Pay-for-Parking garages are operated by the City of Columbia and are available 24/7. Customers can pay by cash or credit card. A cashier is on site most days from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Charges are $2 for the first hour and $1 for every additional hour, but no more than $10 for the day. Customers with lost tickets will automatically be charged $10 regardless of hours parked in the garage. Additionally, metered parking is available along many of the streets around the facility.
