Parked at the parking lot that is right next to the tents, $6.00. Parked earlier, then walked to the Santa Monica Place to have dinner at the lovely Blue Stove inside Nordstroms. Food was delicious and by showing your Cirque ticket, can enjoy a Free dessert!

Many Santa Monica Restaurants are running Cirque specials. It's worth looking for the long list online.

Before seeing the Cirque we arrived a little early (around 6:15p) to avoid traffic woes on a Friday night, and got to park close for free (parking lot north 1) since I have a handicap placard (needed). We did happy hour at Rusty's Surf Ranch (casual, good prices, decent food (though the chips were stale), drink specials) and walked back to the Cirque. They don't open for seating until about 15 min before showtime so the tent filled up with waiting people.

The santa monica venue was pretty closely grouped so we were happy we went with average priced tickets because there didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house.

Purchase parking in advance and take their shuttle. It's inexpensive and easy.

Pay $3 and park in the Santa Monica city parking structure at 4th and Civic Center, and then take the shuttle bus over to the event site. It's inexpensive, easy, and avoids the traffic in the immediate area.

I recommend purchasing parking tickets ahead of time, as you get a discount, and you can park by the top and not have to take the bus to the parking lot a few blocks away.
