Events Directions

Directions and Parking

City Opera House is located one block off of the West Grand Traverse Bay in the 100 block of East Front Street between Union Street and Cass Street. The understated Victorian entrance is located between Brew and Diversions on the south side of East Front Street.


Two and ten hour metered spaces along the streets and in designated lots make visiting the downtown and waterfront areas hassle free. Parking meters are enforcable Monday through Saturday, 8 AM to 6 PM with exception to holidays. Don't forget that many of our two and three hour meters offer 30 minutes FREE for quick trips! 

If you don't want to think about time on a meter, make the Larry C. Hardy or Old Town Parking Garage your parking destination.  These facilities offer the most affordable parking rates in town!  Monday though Saturday before 8 AM and after 6 PM, and all day on Sunday, free parking is available year round on the ground floor of the Old Town Garage (access off of alley behind Brady's and Blue Tractor).
