Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre is located in the Tarkington Building at The Center for the Performing Arts in the heart of the Carmel. We are directly across the green from The Palladium.

Our address is:

Carmel, IN 46032

The Will Call window for ticket order pick up before a performance is located in the lobby of our building. The Will Call window opens one hour prior to a performance. 

The Fifth Third Bank Box Office is located at the west entrance of The Palladium, off of 3rd Avenue SW. Hours: Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 12-4pm.


Self-parking is available on city streets, and in the city's free self-parking garages located in and around The Center for the Performing Arts. The Center Parking Garage is conveniently attached to the Tarkington Building, and you can enter our building lobby directly from the garage.

Depending on the season, and happenings on The Center's green space, parking can be crowded. Please allow for extra time to find a parking space, especially around the holiday season when the Carmel Christkindlmarkt is open.

The Veteran's Way and Civic Square parking garages are convenient options as well, located within a block of the theatre. The new Civic Square Garage is not pictured on the map below, but is just south of the Veterans Way Garage on the map, where that blue parking lot is currently shown. There are other free surface parking lots in the area as well, all with paved access to The Center and our building via the Monon Trail. 

**Please note, the Valet parking option mentioned below is only available for performances at The Palladium and is not available for Civic Theatre performances.
