LAS VEGAS – Calling all sports fans! Las Vegas will be THE place to be for the annual  Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend (UVSW).  This year’s action-packed line-up of events will begin with a free FAN FEST at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center on Thursday, February 28 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Featuring NASCAR, USA Sevens Rugby, UFC, and Vegas Golden Knights hockey, the Ultimate Vegas Sports Weekend debuted to great fanfare in 2018.  The 2019 UVSW will provide an even greater fan experience, with an expanded FAN FEST and the addition of the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour to the weekend’s sports mix.

Before kicking off their individual races, competitions, matches and games, the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center will transform into a sports fan’s dream zone with interactive experiences, athlete appearances and prize giveaways from all of the featured sports as well as the Las Vegas Lights FC, Aces, Aviators,UNLV, Boyd Gaming, Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame and more!

Fans can test their skills at slapping a puck into the Vegas Golden Knights hockey net, punching it out at the UFC Striking Challenge or trying their hand at the rugby ball toss. Plus, see for yourself the raw power faced by bull riders as fans can get up close and personal with a real life 2,000-pound rodeo bull. 

There will also be autograph signing, meet and greets, ticket and prize giveaways, food trucks and drinks throughout the FAN FEST.

The FAN FEST will conclude just as the annual NASCAR Hauler Parade will make its way up Las Vegas Blvd. and through Downtown Las Vegas.  Beginning at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign just south of Mandalay Bay, approximately 40 brightly colored 18-wheeled haulers receive a police escort as they parade up the Strip.  For the first time, the parade will make its way through Downtown Las Vegas to the U.S. 95/LV Blvd. interchange before making their way north to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The festivities continue with the USA Sevens Parade of Nations and Opening Ceremony just a short walk away on Fremont Street.  Fans from all over the world can interact with players as the teams proudly march down Fremont Street.

Finally, head back to the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center for the Vegas Golden Knights watch party presented by the D Las Vegas as they take on the Florida Panthers at 7:00 p.m.
