What to Pack for National Finals Rodeo 2022

The “Super Bowl of Rodeo” is back! National Finals Rodeo 2022 (NFR), organized by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association, is the most prestigious rodeo event in the United States. Everyone is gearing up to have a great time in Las Vegas this December. Before you pack your bags, be sure to plan your outfits accordingly. There’s only one rule when it comes to NFR fashion: go big or go home!

How to dress for your day at National Finals Rodeo 2022

How you dress for NFR in the daytime will vary quite drastically from how you dress at night. That’s because daytime looks are for casual outings, holiday gift shopping and sightseeing. Nighttime looks are when everyone goes all out with glitz and glam. The more bling, the better.

During the days you’ll want to keep your look classic western with some comfortable but stylish staples. You’ll stay busy running around, shopping and exploring Las Vegas so pack with that in mind. Here’s what we recommend:

Daytime Outfits For NFR 2022
  • Jeans – Go for something comfortable. You’ll probably be walking a lot during the day, so keep it NFR-stylish with some trendy flared options or colored jeans.
  • Tops – It may be Las Vegas, but it’s still December where the average high reaches about 60 degrees. Go for layers in case it’s colder than you expect. Aim for options you can mix and match like flowy blouses paired with a jacket or cute tanks with an Aztec cardigan.
