Directions, Parking & Food 2022

How to Get There 

MananaCon 2022 is happening at the Albuquerque Convention Center! 

🚌 Lots of bus lines run near the event. The Convention Center is a short 3 minute walk from the ART-Downtown Station. And it’s free to ride the bus in Albuquerque in 2022! 

🚲 Bike racks are available on both sides of the building, too.                                                

🚗 Primary parking is available at the Convention Center garage (Martin Luther King Blvd & Broadway), with overflow parking available at the Civic Plaza garage (Marquette & 3rd St.). Event parking in these garages is $6.00 – $10.00 per vehicle, without in/out privileges.

Additionally, there are numerous other public parking garages and parking lots available throughout downtown close to the Center. Parking fees vary. Please refer to the posted parking fees at each garage or lot.

Where should I go inside the Convention Center? 

↘️ The Convention Center is split into two buildings, East and West.  We’re in the West building, on the lower level, in the Anasazi Room
