Watch celebrities face off before the Slam Dunk Contest and the 3-Point Contest during NBA’s All-Star weekend with your NBA All-Star Celebrity Game tickets. The celebrity game is a basketball exhibition match that features famous entertainers, WNBA/former NBA players, and athletes from other sports. The game normally takes place on Friday during NBA All-Star Weekend. It’s held on the same day as the Rising Stars Challenge. That Saturday features the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest, and the Slam Dunk Contest. Finally, the main celebrity game is held on Sunday.
The first-ever celebrity game was held during the 2003 NBA All-Star Weekend. The game featured celebrities like Ice Cube, Justin Timberlake, and Jamie Foxx. Just like the main All-Star Game that Sunday, the Celebrity Game also awards an MVP. Over the years, the game has seen MVPs like Kevin Hart, Terrell Owens, and Justin Bieber. Kevin Hart has won the most MVP awards with 4 and Terrell Owens comes in second with 2. Using TicketSmarter, buy your NBA All-Star Celebrity Game tickets.

The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game generally takes place within the first 3 weeks of February. Each year, the NBA chooses a different city to host the festivities of the weekend. The team that plays in that city is generally considered the hosting team. In 2020, the NBA chose the Wintrust Arena in Chicago to host the Celebrity Game. The main game was held at the United Center, which is home to the Chicago Bulls. In 2019, the game was held at Bojangles’ Coliseum in Charlotte. Other venues that have hosted the Celebrity Game include Madison Square Garden in New York City, Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto, and the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Celebrity Game tickets generally go on sale as soon as the host city and the annual All-Star Weekend is announced and made official by the NBA. The weekend is highly demanded by NBA fans due to all the NBA and non-NBA festivities happening that weekend. Avoid the lines at the box office and get your NBA All-Star tickets.
The NBA chooses a different city every year to host the annual All-Star Weekend. Past venues include the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans and Madison Square Garden in New York City. The venues have a capacity of 74,295 and 20,789, respectively.
