Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Kansas City Ballet performs mostly at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Located at the southeast corner of Broadway and 16th Streets in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, the Kauffman Center can easily be accessed via numerous routes. It offers quick access off of I-35 and I-70.

Arts District Parking Garage

The Arts District parking garage, immediately south of – and underneath – the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, is the primary parking garage for Kansas City Ballet patrons. Event parking is $10 per car and is accessible from the east and south sides of the complex. Additional neighboring lots charge $5 to $10 to park. Street parking is metered but not enforced after 6 p.m., so arrive early to acquire those spots. Please note that motorcycles are not allowed in the Arts District Garage due to safety reasons.

Valet parking is also available for $18 in advance or $20 at the door.

A benefit of being a subscriber is having the option of purchasing a season parking pass that will ensure a space in the Arts District garage. A parking pass with a 3-show subscription only costs $30 ($54 valet) for the season.

Single parking passes are available here.

Accessible Parking

Two drop-off areas allow guests to easily access the center: one on 16th Street to the north, another from the private drive just south of the building. Handicapped parking spots in the Arts District Garage are close to building access points; pathways are well-marked and ample. The Kauffman Center has elevator access to all levels.
