Friday and Saturday, April 1 & 2

Events at the Tivoli Theatre
on Friday and Saturday are centrally located and on the free electric CARTA shuttle route. A CARTA shuttle map will be enclosed in your Conference packet. Further, shuttles will transport you Saturday to the luncheon beginning at 11:30 AM in front of the Tivoli Theatre and leaving every five minutes for the Convention and Trade Center.

The Tivoli Theatre does not have its own parking lot or facility. The AEC suggests parking at the Shuttle Park South (by the Chattanooga Choo Choo, 1400 Market Street) or Shuttle Park North (Bijou Theatre, 215 Broad Street) and riding the free electric CARTA shuttle. If you are staying in a downtown hotel, the hotel should provide parking during your stay.
