Trinity Church was founded in 1833 with a modest Greek Revival meeting hall designed by Charles Steadman, which gave way in 1870 to a stone Gothic-style church designed by Richard Upjohn. Through several renovations and restoration after a devastating fire in 1963, Trinity Church is now the largest Episcopal church in New Jersey.
Trinity Church has been a welcoming home to Princeton Festival opera rehearsals for many years and we are excited to present our first performance there in 2019!
What had been a municipal parking lot adjacent to Trinity Church (enter on Mercer Street) is now reserved for Trinity Church users.
Metered parking is available on Route 206 (Stockton Street) directly in front of Trinity Church’s campus and on Mercer Street. Please read the parking signage carefully since regulations and rates changed on November 5, 2018. Up-to-date information can be found on Princeton’s Paid Parking Information webpage.
In addition, three municipal parking garages that charge a small fee are located on Chambers, Hulfish and Spring Streets in downtown Princeton, just off Palmer Square.
The north transept is accessible from the Stockton Street (Route 206) and the south transept is accessible from Mercer Street via ramp from the circular driveway. A unisex handicap-accessible restroom is located on the main level near the south transept.
Please contact the McCarter Box Office at 609.258.2787 or The Princeton Festival at 609.759.0379 to reserve a wheelchair space (with companion seating), or let the house staff know of your needs when you arrive. (Please try to arrive at least 30 minutes before a performance.)
