Dear Wrangler NFR Fans, Las Vegas Events and the PRCA would like to welcome you to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and personally thank you for your continued support and dedication to the world’s richest and most prestigious rodeo. In 2016, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo hit a tremendous milestone – 300 consecutive sold-out performances at the Thomas & Mack Center. While this is certainly a significant accomplishment and a testament to the loyalty of rodeo fans, all of us at Las Vegas Events will not take anything for granted. For rodeo fans, contestants and those within the industry, the NFR truly becomes “The Best Ten Days of the Year.” Each year we strive to provide you with the ultimate NFR Experience during your stay in Las Vegas. This year is no different. 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. When you attend the Wrangler NFR at the Thomas & Mack Center, we invite you to check out The ‘Shoe, a fully-themed Western hospitality and interactive experience that also features a Stripview and an 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 Lounge and more. At Cowboy Christmas, It’s All Here! In addition, the Junior NFR presented by YETI will be held inside the Wrangler Rodeo Arena at Cowboy Christmas and will run for ten consecutive days. Youth contestants will compete for titles in junior bull riding, team roping, tie-down roping, junior steer wrestling, barrel racing, breakaway, mini saddle bronc riding and mini bareback riding. While the greatest rodeo competitors in the world chase the coveted gold buckle, we invite you to share in the Western heritage and experience everything that Las Vegas and the Wrangler NFR have to offer.

Sincerely,

Pat Christenson President, Las Vegas Events

Only the Best Will Do. Meet Team Hesston. We’re able to round up the best in rodeo because these pros know Hesston is the best in hay. Follow the team on social media as they blaze their way through the Pro Rodeo trail on their way to the 2017 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. For quality hay, however, don’t follow anyone. Lead with Hesston hay equipment.
