The Plaza is jointly sponsoring the event with the Commission for the Las Vegas Centennial, which will take place on November 10-11 2023.

Las Vegas Days Rodeo, formerly known as Helldorado Days, is an annual western-themed event that pays homage to the history of Las Vegas through rodeo competitions and a range of historical exhibits, along with events like Whiskerino contest and Mutton Busting.

This year, it will feature events like bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, saddle bacon ring, breakaway and bareback riding.

The total prize purse for these events amounts to $45,000. Notably, these rodeo events hold full sanction from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Women's Professional Rodeo Association.

In addition to the rodeo action, it will feature a "Then & Now" exhibit showcasing photos of downtown Las Vegas along with western-themed exhibits.

For the younger crowd, the Las Vegas Days Rodeo includes Mutton Busting, a sheep riding competition open to children aged 4-10 weighing less than 60 pounds.

Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza, recently spoke to Gaming America for its CEO Special edition. Watch out for that interview, due to go live soon.
