Parking:

If you park at the Plymouth Ramp (across Hennepin Ave from The Cowles Center) for any Cowles production, bring your parking ticket into Mason's Restaurant and Barre to be validated for $6 parking!

The Cowles Center has also partnered with Parking Panda and Click and Park to provide you with options to pre-purchase your parking at a number of ramps and lots near The Cowles Center.

Traffic and parking can be difficult in downtown Minneapolis, so we recommend you purchase your parking in advance to ensure you have a spot and give yourself plenty of time to get to The Cowles Center.
