From I-5 (north or southbound):
Spend less time paying to park with the “CallToPark” or “PayByPhone” app.
We suggest allowing at least 30-45 minutes of extra time to find parking due to recent changes in parking availability and increased traffic. Out of respect for our neighbors, Taproot patrons are asked to park only in the suggested lots below or use nearby street parking:
*Taproot Theatre Company is not affiliated with Atlas Coffee, Bartell Drugs, Bank of America, Chase Bank, Diamond Parking, Encore Media Group, North Star Diner, Platinum Parking, Piper Village, Republic Parking or Snapdoodle Toys. All prices quoted are correct as of 1/28/2020 to the best of our knowledge. Neighborhood parking surveys are periodically conducted by Taproot Theatre on an irregular basis. Additional fees may be applied. Prices are always subject to change without notice. If posted rates are different from the rates listed in parking apps please call the parking company associated with that parking lot. All parking is at the driver’s own personal risk and expense.
DROP OFF ZONE: There is now a 3-minute passenger load zone on the corner of N 85th St and Palatine Ave N (the street just west of the theatre). Additional 30 minute and 1 hour parking spots are located throughout the neighborhood.
Please DO NOT park in the North Piper Village parking lot, in reserved parking spots in the Piper Village parking lot behind the theatre or at Fred Meyer. Patrons parking in these lots can be ticketed or towed. Thank you for helping us maintain good relationships with our neighboring businesses!
For the safety of our patrons and actors, late seating and reseating is at the discretion of the House Manager. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to curtain.
