NBA All-Star Weekend

NBA's All-Star Weekend is a weekend-long festival that culminates with the main event, the NBA All-Star basketball game. The festivities — which have taken place for more than 60 years — showcase exhibitions, performances and basketball-themed competitions. The Slam Dunk contest and the Three-Point Shootout are among the most popular events in which NBA players participate. Each February, the proceedings provide an opportunity for friendly competition between players and lighthearted entertainment for basketball fans.
