City Event Parking

The City of Lancaster hosts special events each year that draw thousands of people to downtown Lancaster. For more information, please see City of Lancaster events.

The Lancaster Parking Authority (LPA) helps out with parking. For First Friday (held the first Friday of each month), there is flat rate parking of $5 after 5 p.m. available in all LPA garages. The same $5 after 5 p.m. flat rate for parking in LPA garages is available every weekend, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Some annual events, such as the Celebrate Lancaster in June, also includes a flat rate parking fee. The LPA offers a $5 flat rate fee for parking at the Prince Street Garage (or other garages as required) for Celebrate Lancaster as a customer service to allow for quicker and easier exiting from the garage. Please follow us on social media and/or call the LPA office at 717-299-0907 for more information.

Special and Business Events

Businesses or individuals interested in hosting a special event can contact the LPA to ask about setting up a special parking validation program for your guests. The LPA also leases our garage roof areas for special events. Please contact us at 717-299-0907 for details.
