NFR Cowboy Christmas Las Vegas 2023 FAQ

The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Christmas gift show is one of the largest Cowboy vendors shows in the world.

Hosted by The Cowboy Channel, Cowboy Christmas has been a tradition since 1986. Spread across half a million square feet, 350+ vendors come to Las Vegas from across the country to immerse themselves and an average of 250,000 visitors per year in Western Cowboy culture.

Vendors will sell custom jewelry, western wear, boots, spurs, furniture, crafts, home goods, and original art.

However, one of the most exciting events during Cowboy Christmas is the Junior World Finals where competitors have ten straight days of competition to try their best to earn Junior World Champion titles and $1 million in cash prizes for placing in rodeo events.
