The Plaza is home to the CORE Arena, downtown’s only outdoor equestrian center and multipurpose event facility, which has two outdoor arenas for roping practice and exercise during NFR. There will be double the number of equine stalls, 24-hour security and veterinarian services provided by Outlaw Equine. Rodeo participants and enthusiasts can “kiss their horses goodnight,” knowing their animals will be safe while they enjoy their evening just steps away playing on the casino floor or having a delicious steak dinner at Oscar’s Steakhouse.
While CORE Arena is the headquarters to the events for the youth, we have also added events and attractions for adults. CORE Arena hosts various events including Bareback, Tie Down, Break-away and Bull Riding. The entertainment continues inside of the Plaza with Dummy Roping, Watch Parties and a premier horse sale where quality, class, and distinction meets.
Masks Required – Masks are required at the Thomas & Mack Center and on the NFR Express Shuttle Buses
