The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee has chosen Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix as the host site for an unforgettable fan experience the week before Super Bowl LVII. The City of Phoenix is thrilled to welcome the NFL and its fans to the heart of downtown Phoenix.
Free to the public, this multi-day outdoor festival will feature an immersive fan experience with live music, entertainment, local cuisine and multicultural celebrations.
“Downtown Phoenix has changed a lot since the last big game. We look forward to visitors experiencing the growth in business, dining, arts, entertainment and our massively improved transportation,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This festival builds on the fan experience that will introduce thousands of people to our city. They will discover why we are the fastest growing major city in America.
“Our newly renovated Margaret T. Hance Park will be the perfect green pocket of our downtown to kick off Super Bowl 2023 festivities,” said District 7 Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari. “Thousands of families and visitors will be able to enjoy a state-of-the-art playground and desert oasis, while sampling our delicious local cuisine, diverse cultures and community.”
“We look forward to welcoming the diverse crowd of football fans to one of the city’s most eye-catching parks while showcasing the best entertainment and culture Phoenix has to offer,” said Cynthia Aguilar, Director of Phoenix Parks and Recreation. “Phoenix Parks is ready to help provide an unforgettable experience for fans.”
Margaret T. Hance Park is a one-of-a-kind park for all Phoenix residents. Through a public-private partnership, the 32-acre park has undergone a phased renovation and revitalization. Visitors will be able to experience the new Fiesta Bowl PLAY at Hance Park, a 20,000 square foot play area that includes a climbing wall, a separate mesh climbing structure, a water mist play feature and a sand play area placed under a shaded awning. His other unique gear includes three animal-themed play structures – a Kit Fox, Black-Tailed Jackrabbit, and Great-Horned Owl.
In January 2023, the City of Phoenix will open a Garden Oasis in Hance Park. Earlier this year, the city announced a partnership with Republic Services to bring 33 native desert plants, 60 trees as well as 4,000 visually-striking groundcovers, vines, grasses, perennials, succulents and shrubs.
