In the past, the Fiesta Bowl organization held a huge block party in downtown Tempe on New Year's Eve, one of the biggest block parties in the country. The Fiesta Bowl no longer hosts that event in Tempe. Instead, the official Fiesta Bowl tailgate party will celebrate the game itself. It's the Fiesta Bowl Fan Fest Pregame Party, and it takes place just before the big game.

In 2016 PlayStation is the title sponsor of the pregame party.

It is now called the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl Fan Fest Pregame Party.

If you are interested in attending the block party in Tempe on New Year's Eve, here are those details
