Whether you prefer to drop by Vegas with a plan or just wing it, you’ll find many can’t-miss LGBTQ+-focused events happening whenever you visit. This is a year-round playground offering annual events that attract visitors from all around the world. As an all-encompassing and inclusive destination, Las Vegas welcomes everyone to come as they are and celebrate their own individual spirit.
FALL FOR ALL
The social calendar stays sizzling long after the sun sets on summer! The Nevada Gay Rodeo Association’s Big Horn Rodeo and Aid for AIDS of Nevada’s Black & White Party are held each September, while October brings the annual Las Vegas PRIDE celebration and the ClexaCon festival.
These large-scale events only add to the vibrancy of the local LGBTQ+ bar scene. Nearby lounges and nightclubs welcome visitors and locals alike throughout the year for weekly and monthly social events. Fun Hog Ranch is a casual hangout that routinely partners with community organizations for fun, themed events, while The Garage offers patio seating perfectly suited for the destination’s cool fall evenings.
FUN IN THE SUN
Take the party to the pool for Temptation Sundays at Luxor Hotel and Casino. The long-running, weekly gay pool party features new DJs each week and typically runs from May through September. The electrifying entertainment is only getting started when the sun goes down though! With an impressive lineup of resident shows, from today’s top performers (including Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race and so much more), there are so many ways to spend your time in between those pool days in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
From LGBTQ+ hot spots to glamorous Strip-side atmospheres, Las Vegas always keeps it fabulous for you. Just a couple of blocks from Las Vegas Boulevard is FreeZone Nightclub and Bar, offering everything from drag shows and karaoke to a pool and a red-hot dance floor. Looking for something a bit lower key? Flex Cocktail Lounge, just a few miles off the Strip, has drink specials and nightly entertainment. Seeking some signature Las Vegas luxury? Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, from former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump, features an indoor patio as well as a lounge area to enjoy craft cocktails and small bites.
These are just a few highlights of the 365/24/7 entertainment that Las Vegas has to offer. Whatever your scene, you’re sure to have a good time no matter when you visit Las Vegas.
