Olympia Entertainment manages two parking locations for Joe Louis Arena: The Joe Louis Arena Garage located on West Jefferson and the Riverfront Executive Lot located next to the People Mover on Steve Yzerman Drive.
Due to the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), traffic volumes will be increased in the downtown area and parking options will be altered for the Red Wings home games on January 14, 16, 18 and 22 at Joe Louis Arena.
The Cobo Center Roof Deck and the Cobo Center Parking Garage will be closed to Red Wings fans and colleagues for the next four home games taking place at The Joe in conjunction with the NAIAS at Cobo Center.
Red Wings fans can utilize the Joe Louis Arena Parking Garage (900 W. Jefferson) and the Riverfront Executive Lot (229 Steve Yzerman Dr.). Additionally, Joe Louis Arena can be accessed by Red Wings fans via the Detroit People Mover.
Please note: All lots on site are cash only. Pre-paid parking passes are available through Ticketmaster.com. Parking lots open two hours before each event and close two hours after each event.
