The Super Bowl is coming to Los Angeles, and with it a laundry list of parties, concerts and “experiences.”
Football’s biggest night will take place at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium, featuring the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. (The Rams are technically the visiting team, as the official “host” rotates each year between the AFC and NFC.)
Tickets for the big game are going for an average of $9,249 — and that’s not including parking, which could set you back another several thousand dollars. If you’re looking for a (relatively) cheaper way to get in on the festivities, we’ve got your roundup of Super Bowl week events, sorted from free to big ticket.
Taste of Inglewood — Big Game Festival
The city of Inglewood will host a free, three-day festival on Market Street featuring music, food, vendors and more. Performers include Poncho Sanchez, Tony! Toni! Tone! and TeaMarrr, and “Insecure” creator Issa Rae will receive the key to the city on Feb. 12.
The festival will run Feb. 10 and 11 from 2 to 10 p.m. and Feb. 12 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. You can RSVP for free here.
The Super Bowl Experience
This interactive football theme park gives you the chance to show off your skills on the gridiron and grab a few autographs in the process. The family-friendly event will be open this Saturday and Sunday, and again Feb. 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Tickets start at $20 for adults, and kids 12 and under can get in for free.
After a nearly two-year closure due to the pandemic, historic downtown food and drink emporium Clifton’s Republic is set to open its doors for Super Bowl weekend. The Broadway landmark will be open Feb. 11 and 12 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., and from 5 p.m. to close on Super Bowl Sunday.
Clifton’s will not be taking reservations at this time, so early arrival is highly suggested.
