Super Bowl City fan village has ended. Please visit our website for current events and festivals.

The San Francisco Travel Association is making sure that visitor information is readily available to the one million people expected to celebrate the Big Game in the city.  

“We want to give visitors all the tips and ideas they need to enjoy every minute of their time in San Francisco and the Bay Area,” said Joe D’Alessandro, president and CEO of San Francisco Travel.  “We will have two kiosks in the Super Bowl City fan village where we can assist with directions, local tips, restaurant suggestions, transit information, itineraries, maps, guides and event happenings.  They can also enter to win a vacation package in San Francisco, Napa Valley or Sonoma County” 

“At the NFL Experience in the South Hall of Moscone Center, we will create an immersive San Francisco experience with visitor information, photo opportunities and a chance to win one of the three Bay Area prize packages,” he added. 

“And we are extending our hours at our Visitor Information Center on the lower level of Hallidie Plaza, outside the Powell Street BART and Muni stations,” D’Alessandro added. “Our multi-lingual staff can assist visitors with public transit tips and multi-day passes, tour and hop-on, hop-off bus reservations, maps, guides, restaurant reservations, hotel reservations, free Wi-Fi, and made-in San-Francisco gifts and souvenirs.  Our center on the lower level of Macy’s at Union Square will also be open during all store hours.” 

In addition to the official San Francisco ambassadors answering visitors’ questions at the kiosks, a group of volunteer Cultural Concierges, dressed to stand out in illuminated capes and top hats, will give visitors information and ideas about San Francisco’s famous cultural attractions and experiences.

SUPER BOWL CITY VISITOR INFORMATION KIOSKS

As a partner of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee, San Francisco Travel will offer two Visitor Information Kiosks inside the Super Bowl City fan village.  

THE NFL EXPERIENCE

Inside the NFL Experience at Moscone Center, San Francisco Travel will provide an immersive San Francisco experience with visitor information and displays from Alcatraz Cruises, a photo opportunity with Madame Tussaud’s ultra-lifelike Joe Montana and a chance to win a vacation in Sonoma County, Napa Valley or back in San Francisco.

CULTURAL CONCIERGES

San Francisco Travel has enlisted a crew of cultural insiders to share insider tips about arts events and happenings throughout the city during Game week. Wearing Victorian capes and top hats glowing with LED-lights, San Francisco’s Cultural Concierge are available to shed their light on how best to experience San Francisco’s famous cultural events and attractions.

“The Cultural Concierges are deeply rooted in San Francisco’s cultural community and will offer insights that you can’t get in a travel book. The concierges, in their Burning Man-inspired outfits, are uniquely San Franciscan—a little wacky, unexpected and generous of spirit—that’s what we are all about,” said D’Alessandro said 

Meet the Cultural Concierges at either of San Francisco Travel’s two Visitor Information Kiosks near Super Bowl City for an Instagram worthy selfie.  They may also be spotted roaming the crowds offering illuminating ideas to visitors.
