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.
Parking around Macky is limited. Please allow extra time when driving to an event as you may have to park several blocks away from the building and walk. ADA parking is available on Pleasant Street, right in front of Macky.
Euclid AutoPark, Folsom Parking Garage, or the Pennsylvania Avenue Lot are your most convenient parking options. Event parking is $4.
*Within a 10-minute walk, Euclid AutoPark (the pink square marked with a "X" in the link below) is located southeast of Macky on Broadway and Euclid, at the new Center for Academic Success and Engagement (under construction, but lot already accessible).
*Within a 12-minute walk, the Folsom Parking Garage is located east of Macky off Stadium Drive/Folsom.

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.
