New at the Kimmel
We have unveiled dynamic new and exciting features to enhance your performing arts experience. From new dining options to enhanced parking, it is a great time for you and your entire family to get acquainted with what’s new at the Kimmel Center.
Pay stations arrive at the Kimmel Parking garage
We’re excited to introduce a new automated parking garage system at the Kimmel Center! The new system is similar to the PPA street parking pay stations that you can find on many streets throughout the city. The automated system will streamline the parking experience by reducing the current bottleneck that visitors experience upon entering. Each parking space is now numbered and visitors enter their number at the pay stations located in each of the three elevator lobbies in the garage. Payment can be made by credit, debit card or cash. There is also a smart phone app available that allows patrons to set up a pay by phone account!
