Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Super Bowl isn't just a game. There are plenty of big events in New Orleans leading up to Super Bowl XLVII between the 49ers and Ravens.

The NFC and AFC Championship games are over, which means that the Super Bowl is just around the corner. The Baltimore Ravens are set to face off against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Dome on Sunday, Feb. 3, for Super Bowl XLVII. The Super Bowl, however, isn't just a football game anymore. Now there's an an entire month's worth of events crammed into a few days leading up to the big game to entertain fans of all ages.

The first big event of the week is Media Day, which kicks off on Jan. 29 and gives fans the chance to watch hundreds of sports reporters from all over the country interview players and coaches from each Super Bowl team.

Next, the NFL Experience, presented by GMC, opens up on Jan. 30. Fans can make their way to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, where they can check out exhibits from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, participate in games, visit other NFL displays, sign up kids for a football clinic and get autographs from current and former players. There will also be tons of memorabilia for sale. Tickets to the NFL Experience can be bought by calling 888-TIX-4NFL or heading to ticketmaster.com. Prices are $25 for adults and $20 for children 12 years and younger. A full list of events at the NFL Experience can be seen here.

There will also be a pre-Super Bowl concert, hosted by VH1, at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans. The concert will air on VH1 at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 1 and will feature popular music artists, which have not yet been announced. Last year's concert, though, featured performances by Steven Tyler and Carrie Underwood.

Media Day, the NFL Experience and the VH1 concert will entertain fans, as well will the New Orleans night life, prior to kickoff, which is at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 3.
