CHRISTMAS IN VEGAS 2022
Whether you’re a Buddy the Elf or an Ebenezer Scrooge, the Las Vegas Christmas season is upon us and we can all agree that everything gets a whole lot merrier when someone spikes the egg nog. This is Vegas, Baby – the place where we bend the universe to our will. Need snow to get you in the holiday spirit? No problem. Want to go ice skating and look at all the twinkly lights? We’ve got you. If you want to roast salty nuts by the fireside or see gingerbread villages more lavish than your condo complex, you’ve come to the right place, because there are always plenty of shows in December and Christmas attractions. And with an average winter temperature of around 65 degrees in Las Vegas, the only frostbite you’ll have to worry about comes in a martini glass.
CHRISTMAS EVENTS IN LAS VEGAS
HOLIDAY THEMED VEGAS SHOWS
We can’t think of a better way to get into the Christmas season than spending an evening at one of our favorite Las Vegas shows that have been updated for the holiday season. All Motown, Terry Fator, and Frankly Frank are all decked out for December with your favorite Christmas carols, adorable holiday outfits, and plenty of fun. There’s also the seasonal version of Tournament of Kings where the medieval jousting arena is transformed into a winter wonderland. Don’t forget our brand new shows just for the season like the dark-humored Christmas in Hell.
Have you ever wondered what the state’s largest drive-thru light show looks like? One word: massive. A lot of visitors come to see the three million lights and 170 lighted trees at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Glittering Lights even takes things up a notch with a live nativity. The 2.5-mile course hosts a lot of vehicles during the holiday season and is open until January 6.
Experience the world of the classic Christmas ballet like never before with this immersive experience that features stunning projected visuals and the iconic music you know and love to create a 30-minute holiday spectacular that’s perfect for all ages. The Immersive Nutcracker is available from November 19th to December 30th.
From December 1st throughout the Christmas season, the Bellagio Conservatory at the Bellagio pulls out all the stops and creates a colossal holiday display that could make Scrooge McDuck’s season merry and bright. This Christmas in Vegas must-see comes decked out with classic staples like a larger-than-life snow globe, a 42-foot-tall live tree, playful polar bears made of thousands of carnations, penguins and a ten-foot long train made from 1,200 red and white roses. We kid you not, you could happily spend a couple hours looking through all this wintry goodness. You’re also a quick walk away from the Bellagio Fountains, where they’ve been choreographed to holiday favorites like “Santa Baby” and “Carol of the Bells.”
THE ICE RINK
Prepare to be impressed by rooftop ice skating, hot adult beverages, holiday movies and fire pits -all at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (seriously, try not to squeal). There’s 4,200 square feet of real ice, light snowfall throughout the evening, holiday movies playing and roasting s’mores over the fire. But the fun doesn’t stop there with one of the best Christmas activities in Las Vegas. Go ahead and say it: “OhMerGerrwd.” The Ice Rink is open Monday – Thursday from 3 p.m. to midnight and from noon to midnight, Friday through Sunday. Ticket prices vary, but entry around the rink is free.
ARIA’S WINTER WONDERLAND DISPLAY
If holiday sweets are your favorite part of the season, you’ll want to head over to the Aria resort and take a look at their new Winter Wonderland display that is made entirely of edible treats! The final product took over 200 hours to complete and features a centerpiece of a giant snow globe filled with a happy snowman and a mischievous gingerbread man made entirely of dark chocolate, tall trees made from 1000 French macarons, adorable, handcrafted bears, and 15 pound sugar cubes. The Aria Patisserie nearby can help satisfy your sweet tooth with plenty of tasty treats and warm beverages that you can enjoy while you snap a few photos at their exclusive holiday photo opportunity. Hours are from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
ETHEL M CHOCOLATE FACTORY
The rest of the country may have their bristly Douglas Firs, but in Vegas we just gotta work with what we’ve got. And that happens to be cactus. Every inch of the three-acre cactus garden at Ethel M Chocolate Factory is covered in glittery goodness, and it’s enough to make Clark Griswold weep. More than half a million lights, animated reindeer and holiday décor cover the desert grounds that features more than 300 types of cactus including spotted aloe, agave plants, Texas prickly pears and yuccas. But the best part is that these non-traditional Christmas lights in Las Vegas are free to experience. Oh, and just a heads up, the lights turn on at dusk and don’t get shut down until 10 p.m.
ENCHANT CHRISTMAS AT THE VEGAS BALLPARK
Enter a glittering holiday lights adventure where you’ll move through a stunning light maze while you search for Santa’s missing reindeer. Enchant Christmas has two locations to choose from for holiday fun, the Las Vegas Ballpark and Resorts World Las Vegas. Activities include an ice skating rink, an adorable Christmas village filled with artisan vendors, a children’s play area, and Santa Claus himself.
THE HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE AT THE PARK
You can’t avoid the holidays in Las Vegas, even if you tried, Scrooge. The Holiday Experience at The Park brings the best of the holidays to the Strip. Every Friday – Sunday in December, and a few select dates in between, carolers will be strolling up and down The Park from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Follow them to Toshiba Plaza and you’ll be greeted by pop-up dining experiences that offer holiday treats like mulled wine, German sausages and waffles on a stick. There’s also a chance you’ll run into more live entertainment once you’re there. And since it’s a Las Vegas Christmas, you never know who’ll show up and put on a live show.
THE FLAMINGO AND LINQ PROMENADE
For a winter wonderland right on the central Las Vegas Strip, nowhere is better than the Flamingo and the LINQ Promenade. This dual hotel celebration includes multiple sparkling trees, holiday specials, and more jolly fun than you’ll know what to do with. The Flamingo’s festivities include bright pink decorations and a giant snow globe at the Wildlife Habitat, cozy firepits and seasonal beverages at the Flamingo Bar, and a limited-time pop-up bar serving a range of themed cocktails with names like the Reindeer Kick, a Tequila Toddy, and the Mr. & Mrs. Klaus. The LINQ Promenade’s many storefronts are offering holiday discounts and tasty holiday specials like Candy Cane Cheesecake at Favorite Bistro, rich hot cocoas at Ghirardelli, and 25% off adult ticket prices at Virtual Reality Adventures.
