Las Vegas Christmas events offer something for a wide range of tastes and preferences. You can see a holiday concert at one of the many casino resorts, enjoy the Winter Lights Festival at the Springs Reserve, or even watch the Nevada Ballet Theatre perform a rendition of The Nutcracker. Holiday craftmaking sessions for kids are among the family-friendly Las Vegas Christmas events, and adults who are interested in enjoying a night out can entertain the option of attending any number of themed parties at the city's numerous clubs.
Many people have a concert or show in mind when it comes to Las Vegas Christmas events. The Entertainment Capital of the World offers numerous concert and show options throughout the year, and it's no different during the Christmas season. At casino resorts such as the Mandalay Bay Hotel and the Las Vegas Hilton, big-name musicians often perform special Las Vegas Christmas concerts before, on, or just after Christmas Day. You can also catch a headliner acts performing their own hits while headlining at local venues during the Christmas season. Orchestras are known to perform holiday favorites during some of the Las Vegas Christmas concerts, so you might keep that in mind when looking to add to your options.
The list of Las Vegas Christmas events is a long one, so you shouldn't have trouble finding things that suit your interests. On the budget-friendly front, the early-December ceremony at the Fremont Street Experience is free. It also doesn't cost anything to visit the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden. This attraction in nearby Henderson is tempting enough at any time of year, though nothing beats a holiday season visit. The cactus garden features more than 500,000 holiday lights between mid-November and January 1, and visitors can also check out the chocolate sculptures and demonstrations. Another free show that is a delight any time of year is the Bellagio Fountains show, which during Christmas brings out Christmas music for the fountains to dance to.
On Christmas Day itself, enjoying a special dining experience is one of the most popular things to do in Las Vegas, as Las Vegas restaurants are among the best in the nation. Rates for the buffets tend to go up on Christmas Day, it should be noted, and if you want to enjoy an a la carte meal, reservations will most likely be required.
