Come September, Las Vegas finally start to cool down weather-wise, but that doesn’t mean there is any less heat on the events calendar. As you make your final escape of the summer to Sin City, check out one of these scorching, can’t-miss events to break up days at the blackjack table.
There are only a few more wine walks of the season to be hosted in Downtown Summerlin, so be sure to stop by for some “exercise and hydration” before the summer is over. The whole family, even dogs, are invited to this outdoor event that combines leisurely strolls with live music, food, shopping and up to 20 wine samples in one evening. The walks meet in the Summerlin Town Square or Downtown Summerlin and wind through shops and side streets with participants drinking the whole way. “Wine Walkers” get a souvenir glass, tasting card, and map of the samples upon registration. The walk lasts from 7 to 10 p.m. and tickets are $30. The best part? Proceeds from the walk benefit New Vista, a southern Nevada charity that provides care to the intellectually challenged.
Location: 5220 W. Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas.
It’ll be two days of nonstop entertainment as Henderson celebrates Hawaiian and Pacific Islander culture with two stages of live performances, a car show, boutique booths, crafts, fine-art displays, and workshops. A Keiki Zone will feature a petting zoo, bounce houses, and Hawaiian games, while the Kau Kau Korner will fill guests with Hawaiian food, island-style barbecue, shaved ice, beer, and wine. The event, which was founded and is organized by the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club, has celebrated the rich heritage and culture of the Hawaiian Islands for 27 years running. Entertainment includes Polynesian dancers and Hawaiian hula dancing, as well as live music. Admission is free.
Location: 200 S. Water St., Henderson.
Hailed as a the best food festival in Nevada by National Geographic Magazine, this three-day foodie extravaganza includes food, music, dance demonstrations, a relay, raffles, rides, and a vendors market. It’s a festival that demonstrates many different aspects of Greek culture but, in the end, it really is all about the food; dishes offered include dolmathes (beef, rice and spices mixed and rolled in grape leaves), pastitsio (spiced ground beef layered with macaroni and topped with cream sauce), and baklava cake and brownies. The festival will also have a wide variety of Greece-inspired goods for sale. including hand-made sculptures and imported jewelry. Tickets are $7 for adults with a $12 pass available for all three days; children 12 and under are free. On the last day, a winner will be chosen in a raffle for a 2018 Mercedes Series GLA or CLA Luxury Sedan.
Location: 5300 El Camino Road, Las Vegas.
Arguably one of the most anticipated musical events of the year, the iHeart Radio Music Festival will return to Las Vegas this year. Unlike Coachella, which feeds on the obscure, or Bonnaroo, which caters to a rock & roll-only audience, iHeartRadio is “a top-40 playlist put on shuffle.” It appeals to a massive audience and, as such, consistently sells out and attracts thousands to the heart of Sin City. This year’s lineup includes Coldplay, The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, David Guetta and many more music superstars. While the main stage puts the biggest names in pop music on display, the Daytime Village lineup focuses on slightly smaller artists and, this year, will include Noah Cyrus, Kelsea Ballerini, and Halsey. Tickets are still available starting at $168.
Location: 3780 S Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas.
Running at the same time as the iHeartRadio festival, some artists, including Lorde, are pulling double time and also performing at the annual Life if Beautiful Festival in downtown Las Vegas. Performers this year include the Gorillaz, Chance the Rapper, Muse and Blink-128. Life is Beautiful hails itself as a “multisensory experience,” providing music, food, and public art displays. The TASTE portion of the festival brings top tastemakers and food vendors from all over, including Wicked Maine Lobster, Truffles n Bacon Cafe, and Okamoto Kitchen. General admission tickets are sold out but single-day and three-day VIP tickets are available starting at $135.
Location: Various, Downtown Las Vegas.
