Customized "Back in Vegas" Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Trailer to Hit the Road for Summer/Fall Rodeo Schedule
LAS VEGASLas Vegas Events and The Cowboy Channel have partnered on a customized trailer promoting the return of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo to Las Vegas. The world’s richest and most prestigious rodeo will be held Dec. 2-11, 2021 at the Thomas & Mack Center.
The promotional trailer will make stops at five major rodeos through September, including the following:
• Reno Rodeo, June 17-26, 2021
• Cheyenne Frontier Days, July 23 - August 1, 2021
• Ellensburg Rodeo, Sept. 3-6, 2021
• Pendleton Round-Up, Sept. 11-18, 2021
• California Salinas Rodeo, Sept. 23-26, 2021
During each of the aforementioned rodeos, the trailer will be parked in a prominent area accessible to fans. As part of the trailer, there is a stage that can be rolled out for The Cowboy Channel’s talent and video crew to film segments right on site, including pre-show, post-show and Western Sports Round Up. On the final weekend or final day of competition, The Cowboy Channel will host their tailgate show at that location with fans gathered around the trailer. The area will also host autograph sessions with select rodeo contestants.
In addition, both fans on site and following online, can sign up for a chance to win an exclusive fly-away to Las Vegas for the Wrangler NFR. The all-inclusive package will include round-trip flights, suite accommodations at the MGM Grand, premium tickets for the Wrangler NFR performances on Dec. 8-11 and more. There is no purchase necessary to enter and entrants must by 21+.
