Free Parking Days

Street parking in most Seattle neighborhoods is free on Sundays and certain holidays.

However, special event parking rates may still be charged on these days in some parts of the Uptown neighborhood near Climate Pledge Arena on any day when a scheduled event is expected to draw over 10,000 attendees, in order to help people going to nearby homes and businesses find parking spaces. Arena special event days and parking rates are listed here.

On-street parking payment is not required on the following days:

  • All Sundays

  • January: January 1* and the 3rd Monday of the month
