For the first time, the most captivating event in all of American sports will be here in Las Vegas, Nevada: Super Bowl LVIII. 

The winner of the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs, will be taking on the winners of the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers, in the first-ever playoff game inside the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders, Allegiant Stadium. 

This is not the first time these two teams have met, as it was just four years ago when the Chiefs took down the 49ers by a score of 31-20 in Super Bowl 54, which took place inside Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.

However, if there is one thing that the Super Bowl is known for, it is the experience put on inside the host city leading up to the Sunday of the big game, and that is no exception this year inside the growing sports capital of the world. 

These are just a few significant attractions available to the public this week as Las Vegas prepares to host its first-ever Super Bowl.

LAS VEGAS SUPER BOWL EXPERIENCE (Feb. 7-10)

The first attraction announced for fans was an event that has been a tradition since 1992 known as the Super Bowl Experience. 

This event is the NFL’s most extravagant and immersive football festival is open to the public at a price of $25. Kids under 12 may enter for free to roam through what may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This festival aims to bring a unique experience to every football fan with interactive games, NFL exhibits, giveaways, and exclusive autograph and photo opportunities with past and present NFL players. 

Some of the most notable artifacts in NFL history will be in attendance, such as the Lombardi Trophy and all 56 Super Bowl rings that, usually, people would not have the opportunity to examine up close unless they attended the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

This event is open from 3-10 p.m. from Wednesday, Feb. 7 to Friday, Feb. 10, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11.

SUPER BOWL OPENING NIGHT FUELED BY GATORADE (Feb. 5)

The event that kicks off the Super Bowl festivities in Sin City is the Super Bowl Opening Night, fueled by Gatorade, located at Allegiant Stadium. 

The event will have hundreds of media interviewing the players and coaches of both Super Bowl teams. 

Opening Night will be the only public appearance made by either before the game on Feb. 11. 

Along with seeing the two teams competing for the Lombardi Trophy, there will be live entertainment and opportunities to receive autographs from NFL Legends and team mascots that are making special appearances. 

Tickets to the event are $30 and can be purchased on superbowl.com

SUPER BOWL SOULFUL CELEBRATION (Feb. 7)

The Super Bowl Soulful Celebration teams up both football and music to make an inspirational celebration at the Pearl Concert Theater located at the Palms Casino Resort on Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m.

The 2024 Super Bowl marks its 25th anniversary and Cedric The Entertainer & Tichina Arnold will be the host.

Artists that will be performing at the event include Mary Mary, Earth Wind & Fire, Adam Blackstone, Kirk Franklin, The Players Choir and more.

Tickets to the event will be found on Ticketmaster and superbowlsoulful.com has a direct link to the tickets.

The Super Bowl Soulful Celebration will also be national television on CBS.

CBS LAS VEGAS RESIDENCY (Feb. 5-11)

It was announced three weeks ago that CBS would host a week-long residency in Las Vegas leading up to the Super Bowl on Feb. 11. 

Many may ask where CBS plans to set up shop, and the answer to that question is the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio Fountains.

The famous fountains have been the backdrop for multiple sporting events over the past few years, including the NFL Draft, the NHL All-Star Game and the first-ever Las Vegas Grand Prix. 

Sports shows will not be the only thing moving to take place live in Las Vegas, as news and entertainment will also be a focus from the temporary CBS headquarters in the city that never sleeps. 

Just a few shows that have already been announced to be streamed live from Las Vegas are those such as ‘The NFL Today,” “CBS Sports HQ,” “The Jim Rome Show,” “CBS Mornings,” “The Talk” and “Inside Edition” among others. 

If there was ever a time to see your favorite sports analysts and show hosts up close in person, the CBS Residency is the opportunity to do just that.
