Best time to go to Las Vegas

National Finals Rodeo 2018

For ten days riders compete in riding skills, racing, lassoing, flailing a bull, and jumping around barrels

This legendary event will give you some insight to the cowboy and rodeo world. The best horse riders gather once a year in Las Vegas to take part in the country's most prestigious rodeo competition which takes place in December.

The Super Cup has been held since 1959, and hundreds of thousands of spectators come to see it. Sometimes, the giant Thomas & Mack Center can't even accommodate them all.

Cowboys compete in seven traditional nominations, including riding a wild horse with a saddle and without a saddle, individual and team races, catching a bull with a lasso, and others.

Winners of the competitions receive not only the recognition of the public but also very substantial prizes of several million dollars. Spectators can not only groan with horror, but also plunge headlong into the realm of tight jeans, savvy boots with patterns, and endless country concerts.
