Core Arena


Core Arena opens December 6th


Located on the South end of the Plaza Parking Lot


The Plaza Hotel & Casino is bringing the western legacy back to where it all started – Downtown Las Vegas – just in time for Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR). Core Arena is the very first and only permanent outdoor equestrian center in Downtown Las Vegas. The new location features two outdoor arenas for roping practice and exercise during the rodeo.

Core Arena, adjacent to the Plaza Hotel & Casino, has 200 stalls available during the nationals, 80 of which will be available for year-round use. The facility will offer the largest stalls in the city along with 24-hour onsite security and veterinarian services, making it easy for NFR rodeo participants and enthusiasts to “kiss their horses goodnight,” knowing their animals will be safe.
