2023 NBA All-Star Game Coming to Utah
The Jazz and Salt Lake City were awarded the 2023 NBA event in the fall of 2019.
“It’s my honor to announce the 2023 All-Star game will take place here in Salt Lake City,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said at the time. “Big-time events in sports are part of the DNA of this state and in this city.”
The Jazz originally submitted the bid for the game in February 2018. The team partnered with the Utah Sports Commission, the State of Utah, Salt Lake City and County, the Utah Office of Tourism, and Visit Salt Lake in their submission.

Former Jazz majority owners, the Miller family, and the Jazz organization undertook a $125 million renovation of Vivint Smart Home Arena in the summer of 2017 to improve the fan experience, and with All-Star Weekend in mind.
“Our estimation is probably between $45-50 million in impact,” Former Utah governor Gary Herbert said. “The economic benefit and what it will ripple through the economy is significant.”
Tens of millions of television viewers and hundreds of millions of social media impressions will bring a boost to Utah’s tourism industry.
