Visit to find all available public parking options for the Minneapolis Convention Center. The MCC has partnered with four City of Minneapolis parking ramps to increase attendee convenience. All ramps are connected through the skyway system and are located within two blocks of the MCC.


You can also download the MPLS Parking App to reserve and pay for your parking spot beforehand.
