Open House on Super Bowl on Sunday? When Pats are playing? No way!.
In fact major holiday weekends, Mother's Day, Father's Day are big 'no no', too.

I am not this year but have in past years. I tied the theme to the Super Bowl. I did have visitors and remember they said they were on the way to a party and others said they don't like football. It can work.

Long weekends are good for selling homes.
I do not.
Many will not try to compete with the game excitement. If you do have an open house, have it early.
Most likely a waste of time, and i would bet most owners would not want to deal with an open house on superbowl Sunday.
I had one a few weeks ago during a Sunday playoff game. While I consider the event fairly successful, I would not plan for another during a big game day. However, an evening game wouldn't stop me from a daylight open house. In SC, college football takes precedence over NFL games (I'm originally from Ohio's Browns/Bengals teams), so Saturdays here in the fall are not necessarily the best time either. Timing is everything. I will now pay more attention to sports schedules.
Around here I am seeing most of them scheduled for early in the day - around 11:30-1. That's plenty of time to get back to see the game or to your Superbowl party. Often on Mothers Day weekend and similar weekends I see open houses on Saturday instead of Sunday.
I've hosted open house on Super Bowl Sunday before. I advertised that the game would be on at the open house and I had a good amount of traffic!
No I am not going to have an open house on Sunday because I will be having friends over. I do not mind hosting an open house from 1 to 3 as the game is late in the evening..
