First Night Monterey 2022

WHERE TO PARK AT FIRST NIGHT

Downtown Monterey and nearby Fisherman's Wharf have many parking lots available to First Nighters.

Note: FNM does not provide valet parking. The FNM footprint is closed to all vehicular traffic, including bicycles (except when walked) and dogs. Lock your vehicles and keep packages out of sight. First Night is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

If you come by car, park at one of these close-by lots (blue flags); the city garages at Del Monte Blvd/Tyler Street have the most parking spaces, as do the lots at the wharf. The orange flags are First Night venue areas - the palette icon is location of Kids' Night Out and Opening Ceremony; guitar icons are everything else.
