Off-site parking is available and is located less than one mile south of the Garden at 146 Vista Royale Blvd. Complimentary shuttle buses will transport you to and from the Garden.

There will be several ticket lines when you arrive at the Garden. There are two McKee member tables near the parking area in front of the Gift Shop and Volunteer Center. (McKee members will need to show their membership card and a photo ID).   These lines are for McKee members only. (Memberships cannot be purchased on these evenings). There will be a line to the left for cash transactions, credit/debit cards, guest passes, and advance tickets purchased online. The line to  the right (Gift Shop/Admissions window) will be for members who do not have their membership card, cash transactions, credit/debit cards, guest passes and advance ticket sales. It will be busy and the lines will be long, but we promise to get you in as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
