If you’re going to Las Vegas for the NFR, then chances are you know, or have heard about, how great the shopping is. The rumors are true—there’s nothing like the western shopping in Sin City when the NFR comes to town.
One of our favorite places to hit while we’re there is the Roper Cowboy Marketplace, open December 5-14, and held at Mandalay Bay’s Convention Center. Anchored by Roper (booth #601), Stetson Apparel & Footwear (booth #401) and Tin Haul (booth #1203), all of whom are sister companies, this show features more than 700 booths, and undoubtedly some of the best boutique shopping around!

The shopping center also includes daily entertainment on the Roper Stage, featuring music acts, comedy and lifestyle shows. New this year is the Roots Run Deep morning talk show, hosted by Mackenzie Kimbro, held daily at 10am PST (Follow along with Mackenzie on Instagram and Facebook for more news and exciting updates about what else is up her sleeve for the NFR). Famous funny-man, Gizmo McCracken, will be hosting his Comedy Rodeo Style, hosted daily at 11am PST.
The 3rd Annual Denim & Velvet Fashion Show, one of the most anticipated events of the NFR, will be held on Saturday, December 7 at 4pm PST.
Another big attraction that Roper Cowboy Marketplace boasts is the Priefert Arena. The arena features a variety of events including Twisted X American Bull Fighting Championship, church services, and two horse sales—Twombly Performance Horse Sale (December 7), and the Cowboy Select Sale (December 13).
When you’re done shopping, you can hitch a free ride to either the RIO (the NEW location of their sister trade-show Stetson Country Christmas), and the Orleans for the ALL-IN Barrel Race and ALL-IN Breakaway Roping events!
We can’t wait to see you in Las Vegas—and chances are you’ll run into us, shopping ‘til we drop, at the Roper Cowboy Marketplace!
