Duff Goldman to Kick Off Big-Game Celebrations at a Fan Festival

Find out where you can catch Duff Goldman celebrating the big game in Arizona.
Duff Goldman

Duff Goldman isn't one for doing things on a small scale. From cakes to competitions, the host of Duff Till Dawn and Kids Baking Championship is all about taking his craft to the extreme, and there's perhaps no better place for him to highlight his commitment to the big and bold than at the ultimate display of sportsmanship: the big game. In partnership with DIRECTV, Duff and Food Network will be on hand during the first-ever  Super Fan Festival beginning Wednesday, Jan. 28, the week leading up to Sunday's big football game.

If you're heading to Glendale, Ariz., to partake in the football frenzy, you can buy tickets to join in the celebration with Duff. He'll be kicking off the opening fete by presenting a themed cake inspired by the event.

If you prefer sabotage to sweets, however, grab a ticket and make your way to the Super Fan Festival from Wednesday, Jan. 28 through Friday, Jan. 30 for a chance to try your hand at the Cutthroat Kitchen Cash Catch. Lucky players can step inside Alton Brown's oversize briefcase and attempt to grab as many pieces of Alton Bucks as they can in only 30 quick seconds — all while enduring football-themed sabotages — and redeem this "money" for real cash and prizes. While you're there, don't forget to take an evilicious picture at the Cutthroat Kitchen Cash Catch Photo Booth.

To take part, buy your tickets now for the DIRECTV Super Fan Festival running in Glendale, Ariz., from Wednesday, Jan. 28 through Friday, Jan. 30. Can't make it to Arizona for the game? Follow along with all of the happenings on Twitter by checking out #SuperFanFest.
