Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas

The Wrangler NFR is the richest, largest, and most prestigious rodeo in the world. It’s one of the top events of the year in Las Vegas, bringing in cowboys from around the country to compete, watch, and ride.

The Las Vegas NFR Event is the culmination of the rodeo season where the top 15 contestants in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding compete to take home top honors and their share of a multi-million dollar purse.

The Wrangler NFR features an impressive list of entertainers to sing the national anthem & perform on stage in Cowboy Corral prior to and after each rodeo performance. The event brings in some of the top country music stars who play at various hotspots throughout Las Vegas during the Rodeo. Some of the highlights from last year’s NFR Rodeo included Rodney Carrington, Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw, George Strait, Kevin Fowler, Lynard Skynard and more.

What events are happening during the NFR Rodeo in Las Vegas?

In addition to the rodeo, fans can enjoy other NFR events like the Junior NFR, ProRodeo Zone, after-hours parties, concerts and the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show — the longest running and ONLY “Original” gift show of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
