Super Bowl Week is in full swing! But the big game’s festivities are just part of the fun happening in our top things to do this weekend in Phoenix:
Super Bowl Festivities: Through February 1
You don’t need a ticket to the game to enjoy all the entertainment surrounding Super Bowl XLIX. The epicenter will be Verizon Super Bowl Central, a 12-block party (with free admission!) in downtown Phoenix. Highlights of the party include headlining concerts from Walk the Moon (Friday) and The Roots (Saturday), beer and wine gardens, and the Grand Canyon Experience rock-wall climb.
We’ve rounded up details to a lot of events—plus helpful tips on parking, transportation and more—in our Phoenix Super Bowl Events post.
Waste Management Phoenix Open: Through February 1
The massive annual party disguised as a PGA Tour event is poised to be bigger than ever in 2015. With hordes of football fans in town and a guy named Tiger making his long-awaited return to the TPC Scottsdale, the always-raucous crowds will be off the charts this weekend.
Glendale Chocolate Affaire: January 30-31
Can’t wait a couple more weeks to spend some romantic time with your sweetie? Valentine’s Day comes early at this weekend’s Glendale Chocolate Affaire where romance, arts, and all-things-chocolate are celebrated in historic downtown Glendale.
All-Day Open Air Market at Phoenix Public Market and Cafe: January 31
Downtown’s Saturday morning market is going strong all day this weekend. More than 100 local vendors will be on hand all day and night this Saturday, in addition to live music from local bands, BBQ, an Oskar Blues beer garden and more. It’d be a great place to stop by before or after Super Bowl Central.
Brewers Bowl: January 31
The beer game is strong here in the Grand Canyon State and some of the best breweries will be showcasing their crafts at the inaugural Brewers Bowl. Fate Brewing, North Mountain Brewing Company, College Street and more will compete for the trophy, while guests get 20 samples included with their $25 general admission ticket. Live music and local food are also part of the festivities.
