There are several parking decks (watch those roof racks) around downtown Athens. Each deck is designated by a "P" icon in the map above.

  • The College Avenue Parking Deck ($) in the center of downtown will be open all day Friday and until 4:00 PM Saturday, with entrance into the deck limited to College Avenue off Clayton Street each day. The deck will be completely closed from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM Saturday, so any cars in prior to the 4:00 PM closing will not be able to exit until after 11:00 PM.

  • The Courthouse Parking Deck ($) will be open the entire weekend and is accessible off Hancock Avenue between Jackson Street and Thomas Street.

  • The North Campus Parking Deck on the University of Georgia campus will be open and event parking will be $5.00 for Saturday's events. The deck will also be open Friday, though UGA classes will be in session and spaces will be limited until 5:00 PM. Please visit the university's Parking Services website for parking fees for Friday.

  • The Foundry Street Parking Deck ($) is adjacent to the Classic Center and open to the public.

AM Races

The Jittery Joe's Twilight AM Races take place just east of downtown Athens along the Oconee River Greenway. Parking is available in the Foundry Street Parking Deck ($) and at Dudley Park. Due to the closure of streets for the AM Races, access to parking at Dudley Park is limited. To obtain directions to Dudley Park from downtown Athens, please click the orange Route to AM Race Parking Via Downtown line in the map above, as it provides turn-by-turn instructions from downtown to the Dudley Park parking lot off East Broad Street, or click here for a printable map.
