Patrons attending shows have a variety of choices when it comes to parking; there is ample street parking along Bennett Avenue, as well as handicap parking directly in front of the theater. The Butte also offers a small parking lot on the west side of the building along the east wall (closest to the Butte.) Please note, parking is only allowed along the east wall, as the remaining parking places are designated for police vehicles only. There are also spaces available for larger busses on the west side of the park across the street from the Butte.
