Frequently Asked Questions:
How much does it cost to watch the event?
If you feel that you need to purchase more tickets, Friday is $10, Saturday is $15, Sunday is $15 and an All-Session 3-Day ticket is $30. Tickets can only be purchased at the Aquatic Center from May 31st to June 2nd. The main ticket booth at the Aquatic Center entrance is cash-only. However, if you need to pay with credit card, you will need to go inside the main Aquatic Center building to purchase tickets.
How much is parking at the event?
Parking on the Sacramento State Aquatic Center and State of California grounds is $10/day (including practice days). There is also an over-flow parking lot on Saturday only that provides shuttle-service back to the Aquatic Center for $5/day. The parking lots are cash-only entrances. If you decide to leave the Aquatic Center/State of California parking lots and return later, and the parking lots are not full, you will be allowed to re-enter the parking lot. However, if you return and the parking lots are full, you will not be allowed to re-enter the parking lot and must present your parking stub to the over-flow parking lot attendee so you do not have to re-pay.
