Park-And-Ride Options Available April 20 and April 22 for El Riad Shrine Circus and Concerts


The Denny Sanford PREMIER Center will provide additional parking options for people planning to attend the El Riad Shrine Circus and Florida Georgia Line concert this Thursday night or for the Circus and Def Leppard concert Saturday night.

Carpooling would also help increase the number of parking spaces at and around the PREMIER Center.

The free park-and-ride shuttle service will begin at 5 p.m. Thursday and Saturday only and run until 11:30 p.m. Trollies will shuttle patrons from the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds north parking lot along Madison St. to the PREMIER Center.

Ticket holders should arrive early for these events to avoid long lines at the entrances. Doors open at 6 p.m. each night for the circus, and 5:30 p.m. for each concert.

Free parking is available in the four lots at the PREMIER Center. Additional parking is available at McCart Fields located a few blocks south of the PREMIER Center on Western Avenue, as well as on the streets south and east of the facility, allowing people to walk to the venue.
