Special Event Parking

The Port of Everett waterfront is a destination striving to provide a diverse array of recreation, entertainment, and community events. During select special events, parking demand may require the Port or third-party event organizer to coordinate additional parking management resources and/or deploy additional event management protocols, including but not limited to traffic management services, event signage, or other related services such as protection of permit parking. Special Event Parking rates are intended to cover the cost of increased parking management and related expenses to support these events. They are also intended to incentivize carpooling or use of alternate transportation (i.e., public transit, ride share, biking, walking, etc.) as on-site parking is limited and designed to serve a variety of site uses. Those holding a special event may be required to pay a parking deposit against estimated parking costs.

Please note: Any special event taking place on Port property requires a port-issued Special Use Permit authorization and must adhere to the Port’s Special Use Permit Policies and Procedures, as well as any other conditions identified by the Port as part of event approval. The cost of parking management and enforcement may be passed on to the event organizer and/or its participants. In some cases, coordination of off-site parking and/or shuttle service is required.
