Las Vegas NFR

The Plaza is home to the CORE Arena, downtown’s only outdoor equestrian center and multipurpose event facility with events free to the public. Participants and enthusiasts can “kiss their horses goodnight,” knowing their animals will be safe in the equine stalls while they enjoy their evening just steps away playing on the casino floor or having a delicious steak dinner at Oscar’s Steakhouse.

Shop your heart out at Downtown Christmas Expo– a carefully curated shopping event, which features a diverse array of apparel and accessory designers, artisans, jewelers, and Western couture. Downtown Christmas Expo will offer FREE parking with validation from the Expo. Shoppers can also bring a new unwrapped toy to donate to a toy drive to benefit St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. Of course, there will be free Wrangler NFR viewing parties every night. Plus enjoy a free Shuttle to and from Thomas & Mack.
