Please allow for ample time to park. The garage can reach capacity on days with busy event schedules and area traffic may impact your arrival and departure times. On these days we recommend using public or commercial transportation.
The Oregon Convention Center does not guarantee parking availability. Availability is on a first come, first served basis.
Parking and accommodations for people with health conditions or impairments
Both levels of the OCC parking garage provide accessible spaces within easy access of elevators. There are 10 accessible spaces on Parking Level 1 (P1) and 11 accessible spaces on Parking Level 2 (P2). Parking Level 2 (P2) offers accessible areas with a 9-foot ceiling clearance to accommodate adapted vehicles.
Accessible parking is available on a first come, first served basis.
Street parking and drop-off/pick-up zones
There are 566 metered parking spaces within three blocks of the OCC.
Short term drop-off/pick-up zones are available adjacent to the convention center on NE Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Boulevard and on NE Holladay Street.
All drop-off and loading zones are located on an accessible route to an accessible building entrance, and have adequate vertical and horizontal clearance. Not all zones have an unobstructed aisle next to the vehicle pull-up space. There is a public-use sidewalk, which may be obstructed by pedestrians and attendees.
Additional area parking
There are several privately operated parking garages/lots in the area surrounding the convention center. Please be aware that some locations may not be open at certain times and availability is based upon demand.
Note: Some privately owned lots around the OCC promote “convention center parking” but these are not operated by the Oregon Convention Center.
