Click the links below for the latest details. Traffic and parking is expected to be a big problem in the City this week so consider using BART and Uber.
Super Bowl Events
Events: As per the San Jose Mercury. This is one of the better lists. Also check the TV station websites below.
Events: Community events throughout the Bay Area by Location & Date as per the Host Committee. (not too good but focused on communities)
NFL SuperBowl 50 website – The NFL’s overview of all the surrounding action including the NFL Experience.
Several TV stations are providing good local coverage about what’s happening during Super Bowl week, both on their websites and on live TV. Forexample, the 12-minute long Macy’s Fireworks Show with more than 15,000 shells on opening night were spectacular. See their web pages at:
KGO Channel 7 TV ABC Super Bowl News & Events
KRON Channel 4 TV Super Bowl News & Events
KTVU Channel 2 TV Fox Super Bowl News & Events.
KPIX Channel 5 TV CBS Super Bowl News & Events – This local CBS Station will be showing the game.
Super Bowl City
A Free-to-the-Public Fan Village which is San Francisco’s Super Bowl headquarters.

It will be the home base for thousands of fans visiting during Super Bowl Week.
Dates: Saturday-Sunday 1/30/16-2/7/16, 11 am-9 pm
Location: Centered at and around Justin Herman Plaza at Market St/The Embarcadero, San Francisco (i.e., across the street from the Ferry Building). See map.

An “interactive theme park” for NFL fans which is promoted by the NFL. Besides autograph sessions with current and former NFL players, visitors will also get to play interactive games (e.g., run an actual 40 yard dash against simulated “players”) and take pictures with the Lombardi Trophy. Good for tourists and serious NFL junkies but as locals we’d probably prefer to wait until after Super Bowl and go to the 49ers Museum at Levi’s Stadium for something similar but lower key and much less crowded.
Dates: Saturday-Sunday 1/30/16-2/7/16, 3 pm-10 pm weekdays … opens 10 am weekends.
Location: Moscone Center, 747 Howard St, San Francisco. The biggest convention center in the city
Admission: $35 for adults, $25 for children under 12.

Super Bowl 50 Game
The Denver Broncos (QB Payton Manning) will play vs Carolina Panthers (QB Cam Newton). Carolina is the 5-1/2 point Las Vegas favorite to win given their big semi-finals wins and Payton Manning’s age.
Date: Sunday, 2/7/16, 3:30 pm PST
Location: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara CA
TV: CBS TV, KPIX Channel 5. TV show details. Internet live streaming at CBSSports.com.
