Hold tight; the wait has almost come to an end. The NFL selected the city of Denver to host a two-day, free, kickoff celebration. This event will be held on September 8th in Civic Center Park in downtown Denver.

There will be free activities and music performances by multi-platinum stars such as Dierks Bentley and One Republic. This event was announced Monday night during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

The crew of ‘NBC’s Football Night in America’ will also be in attendance. The show will be broadcasted from the park providing coverage leading up to the first regular season NFL game, Broncos versus Panters, a Super Bowl rematch.

This event will be the 15th fan festival hosted by the NFL, and the 12th time it is in the city of the reigning Super Bowl Champions.


The city of Denver knows how to celebrate their Broncos. Roughly 1 million fans were in attendance to celebrate during the Super Bowl Parade.
