About Macky Auditorium, CU-Boulder
Celebrating more than 100 years hosting the best performing arts, lectures and entertainment events, Macky Auditorium is one of the most valuable and recognizable historical spaces on the CU Boulder Campus and a premier venue in the Front Range. With capacity for over 2,000 patrons, Macky Auditorium is located near the intersection of 17th Street and University Avenue in Boulder.
Please note that the Euclid AutoPark is currently closed for construction. Alternative parking areas during this closure include Lot 204 across the street to the south. There are also 200 visitor parking spots in the new garage near Folsom Field.
Additional parking options for patrons arriving early for performances
If you arrive more than 30 minutes early, parking is also available on streets and in signed CU lots north of Macky. City meters along University Ave. and in the University Hill neighborhood are in effect until 7 PM (free all day Sundays). Do not park in spaces marked "Private Parking" or "No Parking." Please note that lot #380 adjacent to Macky is reserved for handicapped and donor parking.
This season, we are proud to announce a new Sunday matinee series at the Pinnacle Performing Arts Complex, thanks to funding from Adams County SCFD. The Pinnacle Performing Arts Complex is at Pinnacle Charter School in North Denver, with easy access from Highway 36 and I-25. From Highway 36, we recommend exiting onto Federal Blvd. (northbound) and then turning right (east) on 84th Avenue. There is a free, onsite parking garage for convenient parking. You'll know you've reached Pinnacle when you see the blue-and-gray parking garage on the north side of 84th Ave, just west of Huron.
