Rialto Series Parking
Complimentary validated parking is available for Rialto Series performances at the 100 Peachtree parking deck (formerly the Equitable parking deck) on the corner of Williams and Fairlie streets. If the phrase Rialto Series is printed on your ticket above the title of your performance, you are eligible for complimentary validated parking.
Bring your parking ticket to the Rialto lobby for validation.
The parking deck opens two hours prior to curtain (for example, 6 p.m. for an 8 p.m. show) and closes one hour after the performance. To enter the deck after hours, swipe your parking ticket through the reader to the right of the deck’s entrance door on Forsyth Street.
Parking for other events is available for $4 per vehicle at the 100 Peachtree parking deck on the corner of Williams and Fairlie streets. Parking is also available at a variety of surface and street lots around the Rialto. Parking fees and hours at these lots vary. See the Downtown Interactive Parking Guide for complete details.
Directions to the 100 Peachtree Parking Deck (formerly the Equitable Deck)
The official parking deck of the Rialto is the 100 Peachtree parking peck, one block past the theatre on Fairlie. Go past the Rialto on Luckie Street (Auburn Avenue), then take an immediate right as soon as you pass the Quality Hotel (onto Fairlie). Follow the signs that say “Official Rialto Parking” and turn right into the 100 Peachtree parking deck. (The deck is not clearly marked as 100 Peachtree, so look for the “Official Rialto Parking” signs and flags). The address for the 100 Peachtree Building parking garage is at 123 Fairlie St NW, Atlanta, GA 30303.
To access the Rialto after parking in the deck, take the elevator to the 3rd floor to exit onto Forsyth Street. Press the green button to the left of the double glass doors to release the locking mechanism and exit onto Forsyth Street. The Rialto will be on your right.
100 Peachtree Parking Deck and Hours of Operation
During weekdays, the deck is open during regular business hours, closing at 10:30 p.m. on non-show nights. On show nights, it stays open until one hour after the performance ends. On the weekends, the deck opens for Rialto Series shows, starting two hours prior to the performance time and closing one hour after the performance ends.
To re-enter the deck after hours, use the same Forsyth Street access to the deck. Swipe your parking ticket through the reader on the right side of the double glass doors to gain entry. If there is no attendant at the gate as you drive out, there is another reader at the gate where you can to swipe your ticket to exit.
Should you have any difficulties with entering or exiting the deck after hours, contact 100 Peachtree Building 24-hour security at 404-521-6590.
