The West gets a little bit wilder Dec. 5 to 14 when the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo gallops into the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. This is the 28th year that the world’s richest and most prestigious rodeo brings its unique energy to Sin City.
Each December, top contestants in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding come together for 10 days of bucking and bruising competition.
Rounding out the Wrangler NFR, the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center features 400 vendors daily. Located adjacent to the gift show, Cowboy FanFest is the ultimate interactive rodeo fan experience, featuring 100,000 square feet of live music and entertainment, specialty eats and drinks, interactive booths and exhibits.
