Metered street parking is available for visitors to Colorado Ballet's administrative offices and Academy studios. The lot adjacent to Colorado Ballet's studios at 13th and Lincoln is for dancers and staff only.  Dancers and staff pay for parking, so please be respectful and do not take one of the parking spots.

Parking at Performances

To ensure that you arrive to enjoy the scheduled Colorado Ballet performance at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in its entirety, please take traffic and other transportation issues into consideration. The Denver Performing Arts Complex is home to several venues that may also have performances running at the same time. This may cause the parking garage to fill quickly. We recommend to arriving an hour prior to the start of the performance. Additionally, other garages and street parking (where available) may require a short walk to the venue.

The eight-story, DPAC parking garage is located onsite and can accommodate 1,700 vehicles. Garage entrances are located on Arapahoe and 13th Streets. Additional parking is available at the Colorado Convention Center Parking Garage located at Speer Blvd and Champa Street, just 2 blocks South of the DPAC garage.  The Colorado Convention Center Parking Garage can accommodate 1,000 vehicles, for more information, please click here. If you have any further parking inquiries, please visit the website for the Denver Performing Arts Complex.

Public Transportation

If you choose to take public transportation, we suggest planning ahead for an early arrival. Be sure to check that your bus or train will still be running after the performance ends. The Light Rail is an excellent option for transportation to the theater.  The Theater District/Convention Center stop drops you off right across the street from the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
