Free Holiday Parking Program

Free Holiday Parking *Details apply

During the holiday season, the City of Sacramento offers free metered parking, from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, at specific meter parking zones. As a continued response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Sacramento will expand this program by continuing to offer free parking at all meters in downtown and midtown through December 25, 2021 to support local businesses during the holidays. Free meter hours will continue to be 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends.

This program will apply only to metered parking spaces on the street. All other parking violations, such as street cleaning, time zones and color zones, will still be enforceable as posted. Throughout the year, free metered parking is also offered on specific holidays. Meter screens will reflect when parking is free and when payment will be required.

Meter and Space Reservations are excluded from this Free Holiday Meter parking as fees charged are to provide exclusive use of the reserved parking spaces and program administration.
