Directions and Parking
(Click to download the above map.)
There are numerous parking options when attending the Diana Wortham Theatre, including parking decks, surface lots and metered on-street parking. This map shows primary parking areas within walking distance of the theatre. Parking decks and lots have varying hourly rates or charge a flat rate event parking in the evenings. For ease of entry and exit be sure to bring small bills.
In terms of proximity, the theatre recommends the following three parking decks as best options for access. Please reference the Downtown Parking Map (above) for other options.
Biltmore Avenue Parking Deck - 16 Biltmore Ave.
This privately operated deck is adjacent to the Wortham and provides convenient access to the theatre. Park at the lowest, street level for access to the main/box office level, or continue to the very top/third roof top level, turning right after you reach the roof top level. From this top level there is direct access to the theatre’s balcony lobby. Look for PACK PLACE directly above the door from the parking deck.
Aloft Hotel Parking Deck - 51 Biltmore Ave.
This municipal deck is connected to the Aloft Hotel and is just one block south of the theatre on the opposite side of the street. Enter the deck directly from Biltmore Avenue or behind the hotel on South Lexington. The theatre is a short walk up Biltmore Avenue.
Buncombe County Parking Deck (164 College St.)
This municipal parking deck is a few blocks from the theatre. From this deck you can access the theatre’s primary entrance on Biltmore Avenue or use the theatre’s rear entrance on Market Street (between Pack Square and Eagle Street) through the courtyard entrance just before the back entry to the Biltmore Avenue parking deck and across from the Fire House. Enter the corridor on your right to access the courtyard that leads directly to the theatre.
