This year, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo celebrates 32 years of calling Las Vegas home! Every night, from Dec. 1 through Dec. 10, the top 15 contestants in each event will compete at the Thomas & Mack Center for their chance to be crowned world champion. The start time for each night’s performance is 6:45 p.m. PT.
The action can’t stay contained inside the Thomas & Mack—there’s plenty of fun for fans surrounding the arena! Brand new this year is The ’Shoe, a 36,000-square-foot hospitality and interactive experience area that also offers a new entry from the northwest end of the arena. The ’Shoe features a Walk of Champions, saddle displays, livestream viewing, and a balcony with incredible views of the Las Vegas Strip. It’s also the site of the CBS Sports Network Pre-Show. Opposite The ’Shoe, on the arena’s southeast side, the Cowboy Corral in the Cox Pavilion offers live music before and after each night’s performance, dancing, and a bar area. In front of the arena, the NFR Fan Zone is pure party, with more live music, official merch, food and drinks, and plenty of great giveaways.
Each performance of the Wrangler NFR is also televised live on CBS Sports Network, and there are plenty of livestream viewing opportunities at Las Vegas properties, like the MGM Viewing Party!
