A variety of parking options are available for concerts at Severance Hall, including guaranteed pre-paid parking passes (purchased through the Ticket Office or via this website).
CAMPUS CENTER GARAGE
The Case Western Reserve University Campus Center Garage is located directly adjacent to Severance Hall (parking entrance is off East Boulevard), with stair and elevator access to Severance Hall. Event parking in the Campus Center Garage can be purchased for $10 per vehicle when space permits. However, the garage often fills up well before concert time and only patrons who purchase pre-paid parking passes are ensured a parking space.
Pre-Paid Parking for the Campus Center Garage can be purchased in advance for $14 per concert by calling the Ticket Office or through this website. Pre-paid parking guarantees you a space, but availability of pre-paid parking passes is limited.
HOW TO BUY PARKING
If you are purchasing your tickets via this website, there is an opportunity after you have put seats into the checkout cart when you can select the “Find Parking” button.
Alternatively, if you have already purchased tickets, you can purchase pre-paid parking online through the concert Event Calendar. Above the calendar, check the box “for ticket holders who wish to purchase tickets only” under Select a Type of Event. The calendar will then show available parking.
Parking can also be purchased through the Ticket Office by calling 216-231-1111.
Limited additional event parking is available in the Case Western Reserve University Lot 1 off Euclid Avenue across from Severance Hall, or at the University Circle Lot 13A on Adelbert Road, and at the Cleveland Botanical Garden parking garage on East Boulevard. Space at these lots may be particularly limited during weekday daytime hours. Some on-street parking is also available, but often fills up well before curtain time.

Under 18s Free for Families
"Under 18s Free for Famlies" at Severance Hall
This concert is eligible for Under 18s Free for Families.
Introduced for Blossom Festival concerts in 2011, the “Under 18s Free for Families” program is designed to encourage families to attend and experience concerts together. With strong interest from the public and the funders who make these free tickets possible, this program has been extended from Blossom to include select Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall each season.
At Severance Hall, the program offers free tickets (one per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people ages 7-17 to the Orchestra’s Fridays@7, Friday Morning at 11, and Sunday Afternoon at 3 concerts. The free tickets for Severance Hall concerts eligible for this program must be purchased through the Severance Hall Ticket Office and are not available online.
At Blossom, this program offers free Lawn Tickets (two per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people to any Blossom Music Festival concert.
The "Under 18s Free" initiative is supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences and by annual gifts from other generous donors. The Center for Future Audiences was created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio.
To date, this program has offered over 30,000 free tickets to Northeast Ohio young people at Blossom and Severance Hall.
