Where to Park for the Made in America Festival

Have you heard? Jay-Z is coming back to The Ben Franklin Parkway with Made in America, his two-day annual music festival. On Labor Day weekend (September 1–2) a star-studded lineup hits the stage with a wide variety of artists that’ll please every member of your crew. Performers include Jay-Z himself, beloved Philadelphia native Meek Mill, EDM genius Zedd and many others.

Now, onto parking:

More than 80,000 people are expected to head to the parkway for the festivities. Luckily, parking locations including Gateway Garage, 19th and Callowhill and the Family Courthouse Garage are within close walking distance to the festival area. Keeping your car in one of our lots is key to a stress-free experience.

If you do happen to park at a metered spot, there’s no need to rush back to feed it. When you download meterUP, our mobile payment app, you can add additional time from your smartphone and receive an alert when your time is about to expire. Thanks, technology!

View our parking rates below for economical options in the area, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook with any questions. Information on parking restrictions during the event can also be found here.
