This is a milestone year for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. For 60 years, it has showcased the talents of the world’s toughest cowboys and cowgirls in the ultimate rodeo showdown. If there was ever a reason for 10 days of rodeo partying, this is it! It’s a banner year for celebration, and there’s no better place to keep the party going strong than the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a proud hotel sponsor of the WNFR.

If you’ve never been to Las Vegas during the WNFR, here’s what you need to know: For 10 days in December, the top 15 cowboys and cowgirls in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc, tie-down roping, steer roping, barrel racing, and bull riding compete for the acme of gold buckles and the title of World Champion. And during those 10 days, hundreds of thousands of fans descend upon Las Vegas to celebrate the Western lifestyle. It’s a non-stop party, and the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is the place to be during it.


The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is within walking distance of the Thomas & Mack Center. 

Don’t want to deal with the chaos of parking at the T&M? Avoid the headache—and parking prices—by walking. The Hard Rock is only .3 miles to the center, making it one of the closest hotels to the rodeo. If you can’t stand another minute on your feet (and after seeing the sights and shopping all day, we completely understand!), you can take the FREE shuttle to and from the Thomas & Mack.

Live feed parties. 

It can be tough to get tickets to the big show, but that doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying the arena action. Every night, enjoy live feed from the WNFR at the Goose Island Pub and all casino bars. Enjoy the drink specials and cheer on your favorite athletes with all your new best friends.

Delicious eats. 

With 12 different food options spanning from quick bites a classic Las Vegas diner and a luxury steakhouse, you’ll always find something to satisfy whatever you’re craving.

Nightly entertainment.

The musical talent at the Hard Rock keeps the party going all night long! Ticketed and free concerts feature country music heavyweights and contemporary up-and-comers. Platinum artist Gary Allan will grace the stage December 14 and 15 (we’ll be singing along to “Watching Airplanes” and “The One”). More entertainment will be added so check back to see the final marquee lineup!

Awesome room specials! 

Save some money (you’ll need it for all the incredible shopping options) with exclusive room packages. Weekday rates start at $65 and weekend rates start at $115. And to sweeten the deal, these room package specials include $50 in dining credit and free parking! Book your stay HERE!

So clear your calendars, book your room, and get ready for the ultimate cowboy experience.
