Important Parking Notification for Students and Visitors to RAC during RPAL’s Juneteenth Carnival

RPAL’s Juneteenth Carnival

Set-Up through Deinstall: Tuesday, June 14, 6pm – Monday, June 20, 5pm

Carnival Dates: Friday, June 17 – Sunday, June 19

Starting Tuesday, June 14 at 6pm through Monday, June 20, 5pm the City parking lot opposite Richmond Art Center (on the 400 block of 25th Street between Barrett and Nevin Avenues) will be reserved for the Juneteenth Carnival being sponsored by the Richmond Police Activities League. The Civic Center parking lot in front of RAC will also be occupied and not available during this time. As a result students and visitors to Richmond Art Center during this period will need to find alternative parking.


  • The Civic Center parking lot at RAC’s 25th Street entrance is open, visitors can enter from Nevin Avenue only, as 25th Street is closed to traffic
  • There are City parking lots adjacent to 1st Northern California Credit Union or across from Richmond Library (these may get crowded)
  • Residential street parking on the other side of Barrett Avenue from RAC might be the best option (RPAL has informed us that during the Carnival 2-hour street parking limits will not be enforced)
  • Lastly, we encourage visitors to RAC to take public transportation, car pool or use a ride share service
