Wrangler NFR 2021
Official Host Hotel of the Junior World Finals and Proud Hotel Partner of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (NFR)

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.

The rodeo today attracts more youth participants than ever before, the Plaza will serve as the perfect destination for Junior World Finals participants and their families with its variety of family-friendly entertainment, affordable dining and comfortable hotel accommodations. As the Junior World Finals Host Hotel, several youth-focused events will also take place at the Plaza, such as national qualifier competitions in roping and steer wrestling.

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.
