Complimentary parking in Garage C at Nationals Park is available for guests driving to the ballpark. The garage is located at the corner of N Street SE and First Street SE with the vehicle entrance on First Street SE. When entering the garage, drivers will need to let the parking attendant know that they are there for the event. Guests are encouraged to park near the elevator banks located on each level on the plaza side of the garage. Once parked, take the elevators or stairs down to “PL” (Plaza) which is street level. Once you have exited the garage, turn right to reach N Street. From here, take a left, and Center Field Gates will be on your left along N Street. Event security will be located at the gate to screen guests into the park.

Clear Bag Policy
Nationals Park has implemented a clear bag policy for all guests entering the ballpark. Any bags larger than a clutch (5” by 7” x ¾”), will no longer be permitted unless the bag is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC. Guests with diaper, medical or laptop bags may use ADA/Family lanes at the Center Field and Home Plate gates. For additional details on the official bag policy, click here.
We will be giving away clear Epilepsy Foundation-branded tote bags on a first-come, first-serve basis during registration. You can view additional giveaways under the Fundraising & Incentives tab.
Old Town Trolley Tour
The fun doesn't end at the finish line! After the Walk, gather your friends and grab lunch at a nearby venue, then hop on the trolley for your next adventure. We chartered Old Town Trolley for an exclusive two-hour tour of our nation's capital. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of DC with the epilepsy community. Grab your tickets here!
