Tonight was my first visit to the Mahaffey Theater, but it won’t be my last! What a beautiful venue for a show! The facility is well-staffed with friendly people and even offers valet parking for events for only $15! Perfect night at G3!

We found it easy to get to, easy to park in garage, plenty of entry doors, adequate number of bars, could take drinks to your seat and the sound and view of the stage was terrific. Very nice facility and we will go often.

The Mahaffey has easily accessible parking in adjacent surface lots and garage. The cost is $10 or $15 for valet service. You pay at the entrance to the parking lot. There is no need for reserving space.
