Parking at the Tribute Communities Centre is reserved for staff and clients only.

Unauthorized vehicles that are parked in this lot on event days may be ticketed and towed.

There are 2,900 parking spaces within the downtown and the City of Oshawa offers event parking for a flat rate of $5.00 at Parkade 3 (on Mary Street between King and Bond Streets) and in Lot 16 (on Athol between Celina and Albert Streets). On-street parking is also available and is free on weekends as well as after 6:00pm on weekdays.

There are also private parking lots surrounding the Tribute Communities Centre that are not affiliated with the venue and charge fluctuating rates. We advise guests who choose to park in these private lots to follow any rules or regulations posted by the property owners.


Accessible Parking

Designated accessible parking is available for guests with a valid accessibility permit on Red Tilson Lane which is located on the West side of the venue and can be entered from Bruce Street. These spaces are first-come, first-served and subject to all applicable City of Oshawa accessible parking rules and restrictions. Parking of any kind is not permitted in the roundabout at the top of Red Tilson Lane as it is utilized as a drop off area for those with accessible needs.

There are also accessible parking spaces on Bruce Street, Charles Street and Athol Street East surrounding the venue.
