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 AFC and NFC Championship games are over as the Baltimore Ravens are set to face off against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Dome on Sunday, Feb. 3. However, the Super Bowl isn't just a game anymore. Now there is an entire month's worth of events crammed into a few days leading up to the game to entertain fans. All of these events take place in what has been dubbed as the Super Bowl Village.

The first big event of the week is Media Day, which begins on Jan. 29, where fans will get a chance to watch hundreds of sports reporters from all over the country interview players and coaches from both Super Bowl teams. The following day, the NFL Experience presented by GMC kicks off. Fans can make their way to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center where they can see exhibits from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, they can participate in games, check out other displays and attractions, kids can go through football clinics, there will be memorabilia for sale and get autographs from current and former players. Tickets to the NFL Experience can be bought by calling 888-TIX-4NFL or by going to ticketmaster.com. Also, a full list of events for the NFL Experience can be seen here.

There will also be a concert hosted by VH1 at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans prior to the game. The concert will air on VH1 at 9 p.m. EST 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.

The NFL experience, VH1's concert and media day will all entertain fans who have made the trip to New Orleans before the game actually kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 3.
