Parking & Transportation
Let the good times roll.
Mishawaka remains absolutlely dedicated to lessening the impact of transportation on the Poudre Canyon this season and into the future. We are committed to further establishing the Mish as a sustainable member of the Canyon community...
Accordingly, shuttle bus service is the recommended means of transportation to and from the show. Shuttle pricing for the 2013 season will remain only $10 for the round trip. Reservations can be booked for the shuttle, up to the evening before the event. Pick up locations are Lory Student Center at CSU and The Transfort Downtown Transit Center on Mason Street at Laporte.
Parking rates for shows during the 2013 season at the Mishawaka will be $40 per vehicle. Ultimately, this rate is intended to encourage patrons to use the shuttle service rather than driving to the Mish in their own cars. For those needing more flexibility than the shuttle can offer, the new rate encourages at least four passengers per vehicle. In support of our overall sustainability goals, we will contribute $10 of every parking pass sold to a non-profit agency dedicated to supporting sustainability in Larimer County.

The Mishawaka Amphitheatre is located in an extremely fragile environment and demands a perpetual commitment to sustainability. The communities in Poudre Canyon and throughout Larimer County deserve the same. We anticipate and thank you for your commitment to sustainability as well.

Park and ride locations are all accessible by public bus routes. There are also bike racks and ample secure parking spaces at all locations.
Special Note for The Winter Season: Parking is plentiful for the capacity of our indoor space. Therefore, parking is free on site. Shuttles will be provided when demand is adequate.
Please Note: Our providers and the Mishawaka do not allow any illegal activity on shuttles. Please do not bring open alchol contaners or drugs onto the bus. Following this policy allows for the safest ride for everyone. Try anything and you may find yourself stranded in the canyon!

The charge for the round trip shuttle ride is $10. To reserve a seat on the shuttle click here. You must pay in advance to reserve a seat. The 2013 season will offer reservations at all stops for all rides. Drivers will carry manifests & RSVPs will receive priority boarding.
Schedule for shuttles will vary based on concert show times. We will be posting shuttle information on the website for upcoming shows.

Stand by riders are welcome as space allows.
Parking at Mishawaka- The Mishawaka is a shuttle destination venue.
There is LIMITED parking available at Mishawaka during normal operations, so we encourage you to use the cheap shuttle option! On days when concerts are being presented, we will be charging for on-site parking 1 hour prior to doors, up until closing time. You can purchase on-site parking in advance, to do so, click here. The cost to park during a concert is $40 per vehicle during the summer season. Parking is free for the winter season.
If you do purchase parking, please fill your car with fellow concert attendees. Carpooling is a great way to use those spaces efficiently. Be humane, don't stick anyone in the trunk.
Parking along Highway 14 during a concert is dangerous for pedestrians and drivers alike. There are no street lights and some folks drive fast on the canyon roads. We care about you and we encourage you to use the shuttle service instead of risking your life on a mile-long, dreary, dark and scary walk to Mishawaka. Cars parked along the road have slid off the side of the road, been side swiped or have been towed by the CO Department of Transportation.
Please utilize the shuttle service and help us change the perception of concerts in the canyon. The Mishawaka Team is hoping to bring you world class shows for a long time in the beautiful Poudre Canyon. There is no place like The Mish and if we don't make some changes, it could be taken away from our community.
Mishawaka will have designated parking for motorcycles during shows and the cost will be $20. To purchase in advance click here. On the day of concert, please have your parking ticket receipt ready to present to the parking attendant when you arrive at the venue.
Mishawaka has no overnight accommodations, please plan accordingly. There is no camping available on the property. We also do not allow car camping in the parking lots. Security will be sweeping the property each night before the last shuttles depart. The shuttles will bring anyone who needs a ride to the shuttle locations where they can catch a cab and get home safely.
Bicycles can park for free, but please park it safely & securely. Also, please be sure you have a road ready bike with lights for safe nighttime riding.
Parking space is very scarce in the canyon. That's one reason why it is so extraordinarily beautiful. We want to contribute to preserving the beauty of this amazing natural resource. Therefore we are trying to address the parking challenges in a fair and responsible manner. We thank you for your support in helping us make the Mishawaka a positive force in the Poudre Canyon.
