Super Bowl LVII: Best Events & Things to Do
Welcome to Greater Phoenix—the home of Super Bowl LVII in February 2023.
While the game will be hosted at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, there are tons of fun things to do and places to see in Greater Phoenix that may make an extended stay in the Valley of the Sun enticing either before or after the big game.
Here’s an overview of the information you need to know about the game, things to do in Greater Phoenix, and places to stay during Super Bowl LVII.
Super Bowl LVII Game Information
Super Bowl LVII will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on February 12, 2023.
State Farm Stadium is the home of the Arizona Cardinals. Super Bowl LVII will be the third time this stadium has hosted the Super Bowl—both Super Bowl XLII in 2008 and Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 were played at State Farm Stadium, formerly known as the University of Phoenix Stadium.
You can learn more information about the game from the Arizona Super Bowl LVII Host Committee as more details for the game are released.
Super Bowl LVII Weekend Events
There are tons of fun events to attend during Super Bowl weekend that can be enjoyed by both visitors and locals alike. These events are fan favorites:
The NFL Experience is a ticketed event that occurs the week leading up to the Super Bowl in the host city. In 2015, the NFL Experience was hosted at the Phoenix Convention Center in Downtown Phoenix, so it’s a safe assumption the NFL Experience will be hosted here again in 2023.
At the NFL Experience, football fans can:
- Attend free autograph signing sessions with former and current NFL players.
- Hear live broadcasts from the NFL Network.
- See Super Bowl and NFL memorabilia
- Marvel at the Vince Lombardi trophy.
- Shop for NFL and Super Bowl LVII merchandise at the NFL SHOP.
Tickets for the NFL Experience start at $20 per person, and children under 12 can attend for free.

You can purchase a reserved cabana to participate in this event with a group of friends alongside celebrities, football players, and other notable guests.
Waste Management Phoenix Open
The Waste Management Phoenix Open, also known as the “Greatest Show on Grass” and the largest event of the PGA Tour, typically falls during the same weekend as the Super Bowl.
