Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I park at the Market?
Entrance at Gate 2 is free, once this lot fills up, then go to Gate 5 or 6 to enter the park which has a $10 entrance fee. Please note these lots are controlled by Fair Park and the City of Dallas so Chi Omega does not receive the monies collected for parking nor do we control these lots. See Map under Directions & Parking.
Preview Party - Valet Parking included
Preview Party tickets also allow for readmission during First Call hours and all General Admission hours.
All other Market days and times Valet Parking fee is $25. If you pay $10 at Gate 5 or 6, keep the ticket and then your Valet cost will be $15.
There will be a designated LYFT (shared ride) tent next to the Valet. Use promo code COCM18 for a 35% discount, valid for new and returning LYFT riders.
