Wrangler National Finals Rodeo wraps up this week and there’s still time to enjoy all the events at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center and the D Las Vegas.
The Center’s versatile venue will transform into the ultimate watch party destination, featuring free live-action viewing zones, hearty food options and much more. The action-packed celebrations will all take place in the heart of downtown, where guests can enjoy live entertainment under a 20,000 square-foot heated tent.
Viewing parties will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. every evening during Wrangler NFR. Rodeo fans can meet the renowned Wright Family Riders at The D, a year-round sponsor for the family of rodeo stars. Playing off last year’s big wins, the team has continued to dominate saddle bronc riding with world titles and gold buckle wins in a number of riding categories. Meet-and-greet events run from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Vue Bar. Guests can also pick up collectable pins of each rider and one-of-a-kind autograph books at The D.
The Bacchanal Buffet will serve holiday brunch ($59.99) and dinner ($79.99) on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25.
