Reserve parking for National Eucharistic Congress now and save money

National Eucharistic Congress logoCriterion staff report

With tens of thousands of pilgrims in town for the National Eucharistic Congress (NEC) in Indianapolis on July 17-21 (as well as the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 21), it’s highly recommended to reserve a parking spot now for the congress—and save money by doing so.

The NEC team has partnered with two major parking providers in the downtown Indianapolis area that have arranged special rates for those attending the congress. Parking passes are available to purchase for single days or for the entirety of the event.

Options include spaces for cars, trucks, large passenger vans, American Disabilities Act (ADA) vehicles, campers and buses.

Gate Ten Parking’s outdoor lot accommodates all of the above. It is an open area immediately south of Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center, locations where the majority of the NEC activities and Masses will take place. The lot offers free shuttle service to and from the convention center, continuously running two hours before the first event of the day until one hour after the last event of the day.

Parking passes range from $25-$525, depending on the type of vehicle and the number of days reserved.

Denison Parking is another option for cars and most trucks, with lots ranging from one block to a half-mile from the convention center and stadium. Some parking is outdoors, while other parking is in garages. One lot also accommodates ADA vehicles.

Prices range from $10-$40 per day, or $50-$196 for those attending the entire congress. The ADA lot costs $35 per day or $173 for five days.

Metered parking is also available downtown, but cannot be reserved in advance.
