Visiting the NFR and its Cowboy Christmas sideshows in 2013 was our main reason for going to Vegas with a bunch of likeminded friends. We were advised that we could get official 'returns' tickets from the organiser's booth at the convention centre and this is a good way to get them although they sold at almost twice their face value....

Last November was the first NRF we had been to, but we will definitely go again! It's two hours of fun and excitement! You don't have to be a cowboy to enjoy and realize what athletes these guys and girls are!

We managed to get a really helpful lady called Alex at the booking office before we went and she got us great seats. Thank you Alex it was the final of the rodeo that had been running all that week so it was extra special

Seeing the NFR was the reason for our trip. We enjoyed it! Not much glitz and glamour but rodeo at its best!

It was on my bucket list to attend the biggest rodeo in the United States and I was not disappointed. Bull riding,bucking bronco riding,barrel racing, team roping, and so much more made my five nights you're a dream come true.

We love this rodeo. It is run very fast and you never want to leave your seats in fear of missing something. We love the free shuttle to and from the casinos. They need to advertise this shuttle more, a lot of people don't know about this great service. We will defiantly be back next year.

Very fun to watch the production and a fast paced rodeo. They run through all the events in a little over two hours. It is a logistical miracle. The cowboys and performers are great and the spirit of competition is great. Will definitely return to watch again.

This is the best run rodeo in the US, period. Most rodeos now have so many commercial things going on it gets tiring to watch. The NFR rolls right through the events, I couldn't tell when the live coverage was on commercial.

Thus is our third year in a row to come to Vegas for the PRCA Rodeo. We have been to many pro athletic events...super bowls, Fed Ex cup finals, NBA finals, Olympics....this is an absolute must. Two hours of action....starts at 6:45 PM. Top 15 Cowboys/girls for the year in 8 events....riding every night for total purse of $6.5 million.... More
