One of the most popular events every year at the Wrangler NFR is Cowboy Christmas. It usually takes place in Las Vegas every year except this year.
Amid the most feared and highly contagious coronavirus, NFR organizers have decided to move the legendary event of the rodeo to Texas.
The popular event, Cowboy Christmas, is also on the move and its usual location, Las Vegas, will miss this year’s edition. The organizers said they will refund all tickets.
If you’re a fan of the Cowboy Christmas and have wandered around without knowing where it was moved, thank the PRCA and Las Vegas Events partnership. The new home for this year will be in the Fort Worth Convention Center.
Pat Christenson, the president of the Las Vegas event, said in a statement that it was unfortunate that they weren’t going to present a Cowboy Christmas in Las Vegas, but that it was futuristic, the one-of-a-kind western shopping and lifestyle experience with fans to be held at the Fort Worth.
While it’s the Wrangler NFR’s only gift show, this event, held concurrently with the rodeo, typically receives over 250,000 visitors a year.
The Professional Association of Rodeo Cowboys announced on August 19th that the final decision on where this year’s edition will take place was to be announced not beyond September 30th.
The early projection indicated that if the rodeo event takes place outside the Las Vegas Convention Center, so will the Cowboy Christmas.
Las Vegas Events and PRCA have been working on the feasibility of including the Cowboy Christmas in their 2020 event schedules and hosting the event in accordance with health and safety protocols.
One of the WNFR’s most successful and popular side events in Las Vegas, the Cowboy Christmas Festival has grown into a 440,000 square foot mall. It is one of the shows not to be missed if you are looking for an interactive experience.
More than 350 exhibitors from all over the United States are attending the event. It allows fans to learn about the western lifestyle. It also includes live entertainment without forgetting the specialty and beverage exhibitions among others.
To enhance the generalized encounter at the Fort Worth Convention Center, there will be co-hosts. The show is one of the biggest outdoor exhibits in the country.
While it will also run alongside WNFR, its event dates remain between December 3rd and December 12th this year. Reaching the Fort Worth Convention Center will not be a challenge or difficulty. It is only a 20-minute drive from Globe Life Field.
A Cowboy Christmas has been hosted each year from 1986, and it has become the ultimate shopping experience. Those who will attend will have the opportunity to find unique Western-style products, including bespoke jewelry, Western clothing, boots and spurs, furniture, crafts, original art and homeware, among others.
It’s also another great opportunity for those who will attend to find certified Wrangler NFR and PRCA goods.
One thing that you need to know about this event is that it is free to enter. You don’t pay anything to see the show.
