For performances, the map to the right offers assistance locating public parking areas since The Count Basie Theatre does not have its own lot.
**Please do not park in the Boro Hall parking lot directly across the street from the Theatre. That lot is not available for Theatre patrons, and your vehicle will be towed at your expense unless you park in one of the limited number of handicapped parking spaces, in which case your handicap vehicle decal must be displayed.
There are seven metered lots in downtown Red Bank providing 4-hour metered parking Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and free parking is available on Sundays.
There is a large municipal parking lot located a short walk from the theater (in between Monmouth Street, Broad Street, White Street and Maple Avenue) and there is parking available two blocks away at the Red Bank Train Station. Parking at the train station is free after 11:00am.
