State Contest Parking Information

The University of Missouri is handling parking differently for State Solo/Small Ensemble Festival this year. The usual parking garage off of Hitt st. is not allowed. They have set aside parking lot AV14 for music festival participants. The bad news is that it is a 20+ minute walk away.

I found that you can purchase a daily parking permit for $4. You can register your vehicle and purchase a VISITOR Lot (UAG) daily pass, effective 4/28-4/29. Lot UAG is near the Student Union where many of our performances will take place. Follow this link to purchase a daily permit:

For free lot AV14 (long ways away):
1. Lot AV14 is located by the Trowbridge Building. The lot is on both sides of East Campus Drive.
