Smoothie King Center Events

In reference to the frozen drink that gives the venue its name, the Smoothie King Center has been given the nickname “The Blender” by fans in New Orleans. Home to the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans since 2007, the Smoothie King Center is located smack dab in New Orleans’s Central Business District next to the Caesars Superdome, the stadium where the city’s other big professional sports team, the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, play. The Smoothie King Center fully lives up to its nickname, with Pelicans creating a great atmosphere that is fun to get involved in (for everyone but the visiting team!).
