Super Bowl 50 Week features activities throughout the region, with the main hub of activity in the City of San Francisco. NFL Experience is hosted in Moscone Center North and South in downtown San Francisco. Super Bowl City, a free-to-the-public fan village, housed by the Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street, features activities for all ages, and showcases all the Bay Area has to offer, from arts and culture to regional food and drink. The NFL Experience and Super Bowl City opened January 30 and remains open until 3pm on February 7.
The NFL Experience is an interactive theme park that offers participatory games, youth football clinics, merchandise from the NFL Shop, and free autograph sessions from NFL players. NFL Experience also debuts new attractions in San Francisco, including personalized digital photos; upgraded 40-yard dash and vertical jump against NFL players on LED screens, a virtual reality experience; enhanced Super Bowl rings display; and a new NFL Draft set.
Within the Super Bowl City’s fan village is the Fan Energy Zone, presented by SAP, which celebrates the Bay Area’s leadership in technology and innovation and showcases the latest in interactive gaming, social media, and data visualizations. The Fan Energy Zone includes three different but interlinked areas: the Fan Dome, the Fan Wall and the Fan Stage. The Fan Stage serves as presentation space for community partners, celebrity appearances, and photo opportunities, as well as the main space for the DJs and MCs on the lineup. Activities are held daily from 11am-9pm.
The City Stage (Sue Bierman Park, near Market and Embarcadero) has free concerts daily from 12-1:30pm, with headlining concerts starting February 3 with singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson at 7:30pm, followed by country group The Band Perry on February 4 at 7:30pm, and pop rock band One Republic on February 5 at 8:30pm, followed by a fireworks show. February 6 is the concert series finale, featuring Alicia Keys at 7pm.
