Directions to the Lake Charles Civic Center:

South-Central and East Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi:

Follow I-10 east into and through most of Lake Charles. Take the last exit, 30A (“LA 385/Lakeshore Dr.” Exit).  It will run west down to the I-10 bridge, pass underneath it, run back east, then curve to the south where it will lead you straight to the Lake Charles Civic Center.

Southwest Louisiana and Texas:

Take I-10 west to Lake Charles. Immediately after crossing the Calcasieu River Bridge, take Exit 29 (“LA 385/Downtown Area” Exit) onto Lakeshore Dr.  Follow Lakeshore Drive east and south, where it will lead you directly to the Lake Charles Civic Center.


There are 4 entrances to the LCCC grounds from Lakeshore Dr.  Any one of them will lead you to suitable parking.  Walk to the front-middle section breeze way under the Grand Entrance Steps & Landing for access to CyPhaCon!

All parking at the Lake Charles Civic Center is free. Note that there are some areas that are currently under construction, so parking in those zones will be limited.  Areas shaded in yellow are available for parking throughout the entire CyPhaCon weekend. There are other events being held in different areas of the LCCC during CyPhaCon, so get in early for a good parking space!
