The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas is a must-see event that’s been happening yearly for over 30 years. The Las Vegas NFR 2019 takes place December 5-14 and marks the 35th year of the rodeo.
Wrangler Nation Finals Rodeo: The Big Game of Rodeo
The event attracts rodeo fans from across the world in addition to locals and tourists looking for some fun. Each year the NFR has a way of transforming the look and feel of Las Vegas. You’ll see people walking around in jeans, cowboy boots, and big hats all over the Strip and Downtown Las Vegas.
The main event takes place at the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV, but this year CORE Arena and Equestrian Center returns with its two outdoor arenas, the perfect place for roping practice and exercise. The Plaza is one of the most equine-friendly places to stay in Las Vegas during Las Vegas NFR 2019.
What to Expect
There will be plenty of large stalls for rodeo participants to keep their horses with 24-hour security and veterinarian services provided by Outlaw Equine. Participants can rest easy knowing their horses will be safe and well cared for.
The 2019 NFR is so much more than just your typical rodeo. Event attendees will see plenty of roping, wrangling, riding, and enjoy entertainment and performances from large country music stars. There will be drinking, dancing, cheering, and plenty of excitement. Be sure to get your NFR tickets in advance if you’re planning to attend because the event does sell out!
Where to Saddle up and Cheer
In addition to the equine accommodations, The Plaza has great rooms to stay for rodeo participants too! There are rooms starting at just $32 per night and special packages when booking rooms and horse stalls.
The Plaza is just steps away from all the excitement of downtown Las Vegas and provides guests with plenty of great food and drink options like Oscar’s Steakhouse, which serves some of the best steak and cocktails in Las Vegas.
The Place to Be and Wrangle Downtown
The Plaza Hotel & Casino is the place to be downtown. With a downtown hotel room at The Plaza, you’ll be able to go back to your room in between NFR and other entertaining events to relax and refresh.
