Days before Super Bowl LIV in Miami, the Super Bowl Host Committee and the City of West Palm Beach are teaming up to throw the largest pre-party in Palm Beach County.
On Thursday, January 30, during the popular free weekly concert series, Clematis by Night, the Super Bowl LIV celebration will get the party started with themed football activities, a turf playing field, marching bands, bouncy obstacle courses, NFL players and mascots, giveaways, and much more.
The event, happening from 6 – 9 p.m. on the Waterfront at 101 N. Clematis Street, will feature two live entertainment options featuring the popular national act Smash Mouth to headline the show. Smash Mouth is a multi-platinum American rock band hailing from California. The band was formed in the early 90s and has churned out hit after hit for decades. Ironically, the band’s name is a football term, meaning hard-hitting play. Smash Mouth will perform at 7:45 p.m. Big Sky, a fan-favorite Clematis by Night band originally from Gainesville will open for the national act at 6 p.m.

In addition to the free concert, Super Clematis by Night will feature the Palm Beach Lakes High School Marching Band, cheerleaders, a live-art, chalk painting by local artists, the Chalk Guys, courtesy of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, and several sports stations for children to experience a variety of sports, courtesy of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission, including hockey by the Florida Panthers, skating by Palm Beach Skate Zone, soccer by N Zone Sports, gymnastics by Gymnastics Revolution, golf by Inner City Youth Golf and martial arts by Cardon’s Academy.
“For nearly 25 years Clematis by Night has served as the place where we come together as a community to celebrate,” said Mary Pinak, Community Events Manager for the City of West Palm Beach. “The weekly event is known as ‘where the party begins,’ and as such, we are excited to once again celebrate the return of the Super Bowl to Miami.”
The interactive experiences will be programmed all along Clematis Street, as the 100, 200 and 300 blocks will be closed to vehicle traffic for the festive celebration.
This is the 11th time the Super Bowl has taken place in South Florida, which is more than any other destination in the United States. Although the game will take place further south, Super Bowl LIV will impact the entire South Florida region, including the Palm Beaches. Hosting Super Bowl celebration events, like this one in West Palm Beach.
Super Bowl LIV is scheduled to be played on February 2 in Miami Gardens, and the first since Super Bowl XLIV in 2010.
