Parking Options at CST

Parking has changed at Chicago Street

Don't worry--it's still free and plentiful!

The City of Valparaiso has closed the small parking lot located to the south and directly across the street from the theatre. Patrons attending Chicago Street Theatre still have plenty of convenient parking options:

  1. NEW! Trinity Lutheran Lot, Entrance on Lafayette St: Thanks to a new partnership, Chicago Street Theatre patrons are invited to park in the Trinity Lutheran Church parking lot east of Chicago Street Theatre and right next door! Look for signage at the entrance on Lafayette Street. City sidewalks will lead you right to our door. (HUGE THANKS to the folks at Trinity!)
  2. Lafayette West: Located on the northwest corner of Jefferson and Lafayette Streets. Free parking on weekends and after 5pm on weekdays. There is a convenient pathway from this lot to the Chicago Street Theatre entrance.
  3. Lafayette East: Located on the northeast corner of Jefferson and Lafayette Streets.  Free parking on weekends and after 5pm on weekdays. City sidewalks will lead you right to the theatre.
  4. Street Parking: Park on one of the streets surrounding the theatre. Parking is often plentiful, particularly to the north of the theatre.  There is an accessible space right in front of the entrance to the theatre.
