Parking Advisory in Jefferson Park today!

Meters FREE Friday and Saturday
Special Event Enforcement Around Sports Authority Field at Mile High
and City Park

DENVER, CO ­— Many will turn their attention to the sky for 4th of July fireworks around Denver this weekend, but it’s also important to pay attention to parking restrictions as well.

Parking meters will be free on Friday, July 3, and Saturday, July 4. However, drivers must still follow the time restrictions posted on the meters.

Meanwhile, those heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High on July 4 for the Outlaws game and fireworks show need to keep an eye out for posted parking restrictions around the stadium and the surrounding neighborhoods. If you are attending, please follow posted neighborhood parking restrictions.

Residents and visitors attending City Park Jazz on Sunday, July 5, should also be aware of posted parking restrictions in neighborhoods adjacent to City Park. Denver Public Works Right of Way Enforcement Agents will be enforcing posted parking regulations in the area.

On Street Parking

Posted signs in the stadium area and in some neighborhoods adjacent to City Park restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Those vehicles that park without appropriate permits will be cited.

If you are eligible for a Residential Parking Permit (RPP), now is a great time to make sure your permits are current. You are likely eligible for RPP if you have a sign with posted restrictions on your street. To find out more, call 3-1-1 or click here.

Off-Street Parking (parking lots)

Sports Authority Field at Mile High special event attendees who choose to drive should also exercise caution when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

If you are not parking in one of the parking lots on Sports Authority Field at Mile High property, choose only those locations that 1) display a special event parking sign issued by the City & County of Denver, or 2) are existing approved parking lots clearly managed by reputable companies.

The signs display the seal of the City & County of Denver and include the address of the parking location. These signs were issued because of the proliferation of illegal parking lots taking drivers’ money, only to have the drivers return to their vehicles to find it ticketed and/or towed.
When parking in a lot with the City & County of Denver sign posted, drivers can be assured that they will be parked legally and are not in danger of tickets, tows or being “parked in” (blocked or trapped in a space by other vehicles).

Alternative Transportation
Use of public transportation to the event is encouraged. Sports Authority Field at Mile High is easily accessible by light rail or bus. Please check with RTD on schedules prior to planning your trip. Go to or call the RTD Telephone Information Center at 303-299-6000. Sports Authority Field is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths and the stadium is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks to secure bikes once on site.  Check to plan your route or pick up a free copy of the Denver Bike Map at your local recreation center or Denver City Council office.
