Holiday Parking

City’s annual free holiday parking program returns Nov. 25

The City of Sacramento will once again modify its parking meter operating hours during the holiday season to support local businesses.

From Nov. 25 to Dec. 24, no payment will be required at on-street meters after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends, including Old Sacramento.

This includes green meter payment machines. Meter screens will reflect when parking is free and when payment is required.

“The City of Sacramento is proud to be continuing this program at all metered on-street spaces for another year,” said Parking Services Manager Matt Eierman. “It’s a benefit to residents and visitors who want to dine, shop and attend events in our city during the holiday season.”

This year marks the final year the holiday parking program will apply to all meters, which the City first offered in 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In previous years the program only applied to meters in specific areas in downtown and midtown.

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.
