NFR 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 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.
