Dear Wrangler NFR Fans, It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, also known as “The Best Ten Days of the Year.” For more than 30 years, Las Vegas has been the home to the world’s richest and most prestigious rodeo. This event has sold out 300 consecutive performances, a testament to you, the most loyal fans of any sport. In this guide, you will find comprehensive schedules for Wrangler NFR 9-5, Wrangler NFR After Dark and Entertainment Around Town. You will also find maps of the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown to assist you in getting around and discovering what has become known as the NFR Experience. Some fans ask, “What is the NFR Experience?” The best way I can describe it is an immersive, ten-day, 24/7 Western lifestyle experience. The Wrangler NFR is the focal point, and creating a unique experience for our fans is the ultimate goal. This year is no different. In 2015, the Thomas & Mack Center underwent a multi-million dollar renovation that included new seats, a wider concourse, upgraded restrooms and more concessions stands. This year we will unveil a new addition, The ‘Shoe – a fully-themed Western hospitality and interactive experience that also offers a new entry from the northwest end of the arena. We also invite you to explore Cowboy Christmas, located inside the South Halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In addition to the ultimate shopping experience, the area also includes live entertainment, autograph sessions, a rodeo arena, saloon, interactive booths, rodeo exhibits, the NFR Social Arena and more. At Cowboy Christmas, It’s All Here! For the first time, the Junior NFR presented by YETI will be held inside the Wrangler Rodeo Arena at Cowboy Christmas. Youth contestants will compete for titles in mini bucking bulls, team roping, tie-down roping, barrel racing, breakaway and mini bareback riding. While the greatest rodeo competitors in the world strive to become world champions, we invite you to share in the Western heritage and experience everything that the Wrangler NFR has to offer. Sincerely,

Pat Christenson President, Las Vegas Events 2
