First three hours of parking are FREE on Seattle's Waterfront!

Starting September 21, 2020, waterfront customers PARK FREE for up to three hours in the Pike Place Market Garage. You have three options to enter the Pike Place Market Garage:

Entrance at 1531 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA map
Entrance 1901 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA map 
(Alaskan Way car entrance closes Nov 15 until Spring 2022) 

When you visit a participating waterfront store, attraction, or restaurant, please ask for a parking voucher at time of purchase.  The vouchers are good for up to 3 hours of parking.  Keep it safe and dry with your parking garage entry ticket. Do NOT bend nor dip it in chowder!

Redeem your parking voucher at any of the automated payment machines in the garage by following these steps:

   1. Insert the parking garage ticket first.

   2. Insert the parking voucher second in the same slot.  

   3. After the voucher is inserted, up to 3 hours of parking will be deducted from the total due.  

   4. If more than 3 hours is owed, then the balance can be paid with a debit or credit card directly at the same machine.  

This is an automated process done by the machine – attendants may not be aware of this promotion.  Enjoy your visit here!  The waterfront businesses look forward to welcoming you. 


One garage. Three entrances. Hundreds of spaces.

*Vouchers are only valid if you use one of these entrances to park.
