Upcoming Vegas Events: Fall '16

Autumn brings a few weeks of exceedingly pleasant temperatures in Las Vegas, and this city knows how to take full advantage of that. The cooler days set the perfect backdrop for music festivals, motorcycle rallies and community events. Check out our list of upcoming fall events in Las Vegas that we’re most excited about!


Life Is Beautiful - September 23-25
More than just a music festival, Life Is Beautiful incorporates art, education and cuisine to produce an always anticipated celebration. The event brings together thousands from across the region to revel in the city’s own living room, Downtown Las Vegas. The music lineup includes a smorgasbord of talent, including acts such as Mumford & Sons, J. Cole, Jane’s Addiction and Major Lazer. The list of speakers includes such highlights as Aarthi Ramamurthy, the founder and CEO of Lumoid, and David Kwong, a New York Times crossword constructor and TED speaker. Get your fill from top-tier food vendors such as Nobu and STK.

Route 91 Harvest Festival - September 30-October 2
If you’re a little more country than rock ‘n’ roll, Route 91 Harvest Festival is the place to be. The annual country music festival is set to return to Las Vegas Boulevard, directly across from Luxor. Country superstars Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Jana Kramer head up an impressive roster of musicians. Between the hot music and cold drinks, this is one of Vegas’ boot-stompingest good times.

The Killers: Decennial Extravaganza - September 30 and October 1
Hometown heroes The Killers are celebrating the 10th anniversary reissue of 2006’s rock epic “Sam’s Town” with two shows at the legendary gambling hall of the same name. The group has yet to announce whether they will be playing their sophomore album in full or a more varied set. Regardless, this is a hot ticket. All proceeds from the show will be donated to local charities for the homeless and addiction recovery. In addition to the two Sam's Town gigs, fans of the rock group can also take a bus tour of Las Vegas that highlight area sites of historical significance to the band.


Town and Country: From Degas to Picasso - September 23-February 20
The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art is set to hang a new exhibit this fall called Town and Country: From Degas to Picasso. The art show, in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, “brings together European and American paintings that showcase how images of urban and rural life changed in relation to the Industrial Revolution.” Works featured in this exhibition include paintings from such masters as van Gogh, Monet, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec. With general admission tickets costing only $17, this is one art exhibit you can’t afford to miss.


Frozen Fury XVIII – Los Angeles Kings vs. Dallas Stars - October 7
For the first time in its short history, T-Mobile Arena will host professional hockey. Frozen Fury XVII will be the latest installment in the NHL exhibition series. The Los Angeles Kings, who finished second in the Pacific Division last season, will take on the defending Western Conference champion, Dallas Stars. The Kings also have a date with the Colorado Avalanche the following night. With Las Vegas poised to begin the 2017-2018 NHL season with its own franchise, it’s safe to say Sin City has hockey fever.

PBR World Finals - November 2-6
Polish your cockroach killers and don your ten-gallon hat. The Professional Bull Riders World Finals return to Las Vegas this November! In its elite Built Ford Tough Series, PBR features the top 35 bull riders in the world and the top bulls in the business. Held on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas since 1999, this year marks the first World Finals held at T-Mobile Arena. Yeehaw!


Nick Swardson - October 7
Longtime comedian, actor and screenwriter Nick Swardson will bring his unique brand of stand-up to The Mirage this October as part of the Aces of Comedy series.

Brad Garrett’s Special Veterans Show - November 11
Brad Garrett’s Special Veterans Show is a tradition unlike any other. The funny man will host a night of belly laughs at his comedy club at MGM Grand that features veterans and stand-up comedians Bobby Henline, Raul Sanchez and Anthony Torino. All proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities focused on improving the lives of veterans.


Las Vegas Bikefest - September 29-October 2
