Super Bowl City will be open to the public in January of 2016.

Market Street will be a hub of activity, as Justin Herman Plaza and the area west of the Ferry Building are expected to be annexed in the name of the Super Bowl. The week-long festivities will be free and open to the public, giving fans an ideal environment to share and rejoice in the rare opportunity to host the Super Bowl.

“Super Bowl City will be designed to showcase the best the Bay Area has to offer, with interactive games and activities that highlight the region’s technological prowess, culinary excellence and cultural diversity, as well as celebrate the 50th Super Bowl and the Bay Area’s place in professional football history,” event organizers stated in a press release.

Super Bowl City is slated to open to the public on January 30, 2016, and will remain open until the conclusion of Super Bowl 50, which will take place at Levi Stadium on February 7. Niners fans can only dream that their team may host and play in the big game.

“Super Bowl City will give every San Franciscan a chance to share in the fan experience of Super Bowl 50,” said Mayor Edward Lee. “As San Francisco hosts the most philanthropic Super Bowl ever, our Bay Area region’s small local businesses, hotels and restaurants will share in the all these events.”
