Jordan Brand continues to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Air Jordan franchise by honoring the fans who have made the last three decades great.
Today, Pearl Pavilion, located across the street from New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden, opens its doors to offer consumers of all ages a once in a lifetime All-Star experience. Whether it’s taking part in the celebration of the brand’s greatest moments or stepping into Jordan’s shoes to relive his iconic shots, Pearl Pavilion was created to recognize and celebrate the Michael Jordan in everyone.
I’M NOT MICHAEL, I AM JORDAN
During this year’s celebration, the Jordan Brand is honoring and paying tribute to the greatest moments of the past 30 years, all while keeping eyes fixed firmly on the future.
