The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee has selected Margaret T. Hance Park in Downtown Phoenix as the host site for an unforgettable fan experience the week leading up to 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 include 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 of business, restaurants, arts, entertainment, and our massively improved transportation,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This festival builds on the fan experience which will showcase our city to thousands of people. They’ll discover why we are the fastest growing big city in America.”
“Our newly upgraded Margaret T. Hance Park will be the perfect green pocket of our downtown core to kick off 2023 Super Bowl festivities,” District 7 Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari said. “Thousands of families and visitors will get to enjoy a state-of-the-art playground and desert oasis, all while getting a taste of our delicious local cuisine, diverse cultures and community.”
“We are eager to welcome the diverse crowd of football fans to one of the City’s most eye-catching parks while showcasing the best in entertainment and culture Phoenix has to offer,” said Phoenix Parks and Recreation Director Cynthia Aguilar. “Phoenix Parks is ready to help provide an unforgettable fan experience.”
Margaret T. Hance Park is a one-of-a-kind park that is inclusive to all Phoenix residents. Through a public-private partnership, the 32-acre park has experienced a multiphase renovation and revitalization. Visitors will be able to experience the new Fiesta Bowl PLAY at Hance Park, a 20,000 square-foot playground that features a climbing wall, a separate net climbing structure, a water mist play feature and a sand play area positioned under a shade canopy. Its other unique amenities include three animal-themed play structures – a Kit Fox, Black-Tailed Jackrabbit and Great-Horned Owl.
In January 2023, the City of Phoenix will be opening a garden oasis at 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 ground covers, vines, grasses, perennials, succulents, and shrubs.
