There are a few car parks in the vicinity including the one at the Red Dragon Centre, (is it changing name soon?) one opposite it and the one near Techniquest. The Red Dragon Centre car park quotes a price for 24 hours. I would think that meant it doesn't really shut but if you are concerned why not just give them a ring or email. Here's the link:

Hope that helps.

The main multi-storey car park serves the theatre in the Bay and is open for the time you want. I prefer to park there at night, since it is well lit and easy to use. For the small 2 storey car park opposite Techniquest and the open car parks you need coins to pay before parking; the main multi storey is more flexible. The Red Dragon Centre has a car park and you can get your ticket endorsed if you are using any of the facilities there. There will be free parking at County Hall (a few minutes walk through the Red Dragon Centre), unless there is an event on at Raold Dahl Plas. It is usually free though. The Park and Ride service into the city centre uses the same car park.

If you're planning to be in Cardiff Bay this weekend, be aware that Sunday evening it will be the final stop for the celebration parade for Cardiff City FC. As a result the entire area is likely to be (a) rammed and (b) raucous. There will also be quite a lot of road closures around the area including The Flourish for the entire day and Lloyd George Avenue from mid afternoon.

There will be live bands and a big screen in Roald Dahl Plass from 1500 and it will finish with a firework display somewhere around 2100 and 2200.

Definitely wouldn't advise driving into the area.
