Quick reference guide to "Tosca"

Our suggestions for what to bring:

  • a face mask that covers your nose and mouth (required)
  • a purse or bag that follows COTA’s bag policy (scroll down for details and dimensions in a section below)
  • credit or debit card for purchases (including upgraded parking & concessions – no cash, please)
  • wear clothing and shoes to keep you comfortable in an outdoor music venue
  • non-aerosol sunscreen and bug spray
  • IF YOU PURCHASED A LAWN POD, you may bring lawn chairs for Tosca! A blanket on which to sit will be just fine as well.

What NOT to bring into the venue:

Additional important notes for ticketholders:

  • build in extra time for traffic, parking, walking or shuttling, the check-in process, and getting settled at the venue.
  • parking lots and box office open at 5:00 p.m. CT on showdates
  • handicapped parking is in Lots B, C, and D.
  • gates open at 6:00 p.m.
  • at the gates, patrons will be subject to temperature checks, security screening, and a bag check, pursuant with COTA’s entry policies
  • show starts at 7:30 p.m.
  • a list of concessionaires and fare will be posted soon and will include options for both dinner and snacks (and drinks, of course!)

Parking and suggested driving directions


This outdoor venue is located just southeast of the airport near TX-130 & FM812 at 9201 Circuit of the Americas Blvd.

Build extra time into your arrival plans for traffic, parking, shuttling or walking, and the check-in process. A reminder that the gates open at 6:00 p.m. Our suggestion is to arrive no later than 7:00 p.m. – we want you to have time to settle into your seats (with a drink and snack of your choice, perhaps) before the opera begins!

We highly recommend you use the Waze App on your smartphone to help you not just find the best way to get to COTA from your specific location, but the best route to a specific parking lot.

Open the Waze App on Android or iOS and enter in the lot you’re headed to (ex: “Lot H – COTA” or “Circuit of the Americas Lot H”). The best driving route to that parking lot will appear.

Ample standard parking in COTA’s Lot H is included with all tickets. Limited upgraded parking is available for $20 in Lots B, C, and D (pre-purchase upgraded parking for Thursday or Saturday, or purchase day-of, credit or debit only; no cash). Handicapped parking is available for free in Lots B, C, and D.

All parking is on a first-come-first-served basis.

Frequent open-air shuttles will be available at designated pick-up spots to whisk patrons from Lot H to the box office and venue entrance. Lots B, C, and D are within a very short walk but ADA shuttles will be available for patrons who need them.
