(Parking) Day Dallas 2019

Main Street Garden

PARK(ing) Day Dallas is a FREE annual celebration of space where citizens, artists, designers, organizations & businesses temporarily transform metered parking spaces along Main Street into short-term public “PARK” installations. Rather than parking a car, the metered space is used to promote human use & activity for downtown employees, residents & visitors.


Free to attend. To register to transform a parking space, visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/parking-day-dallas-friday-september-20th-2019-tickets-60287943863

On Friday, September 20, 2019, Dallas will host its 9th annual PARK(ing) Day Dallas event on Main Street in Downtown Dallas between Field Street and Harwood St.

We will be putting together a panel of professional judges to rate, score, and award the parklet designs that truly encompass the PARK(ing) Day mission.

The categories include:

★ Best Use of Space
★ Most Interactive
★ Most Creative
★ Best Pro Design
★ Best Student Design

WATCH THESE VIDEOS from Park(ing) Days past:

We strongly suggest taking the train, walking, biking and/or carpooling to the event since parklets will be occupying all of the parking spaces along Main Street. If you need to park in downtown the closest parking with close access to Main Street is Tower Garage at 1511 Elm Street. The cost to park at Tower Garage is $5.00 for all day. Here's a link to see all of the paid lots and garages in downtown: http://dallas.bestparking.com/

If arriving via DART, the nearest station is Akard Station.

Thank you to our main community sponsor Downtown Dallas, Inc. who has played a huge part in allowing us to continue bringing you this event year after year.
