San Diego Convention Center Parking Information
The Convention Center offers on-site parking in a private underground garage that is located below the building. There is space for 1,950 vehicles and conventioneers are able to enter the parking garage directly from Harbor Drive, between First Ave. and Fifth Ave.
San Diego Convention Center parking typically costs $10 per day and can reach upwards of $20 depending on the event being held at the center or nearby PETCO Park. Guests must pay upon entering the structure and there is no overnight parking or in and out privileges. If you leave the parking garage, you will be asked to pay again upon re-entry.
For individuals who do not want to park at the Convention Center, there are additional lots throughout the downtown District that offer flat rate prices for a full day or overnight parking. There are also two trolley stops located in front of the venue for conventioneers traveling from other areas of San Diego.
Please keep in mind that parking for large events such as Comic Con may alter parking rates and availability.
