Fountains of Bellagio to Host the NFL Draft Red Carpet

LAS VEGAS – Bringing fans and players together, the 85th NFL Draft will host various free events at iconic Las Vegas locations, April 23-25, 2020, the NFL announced today. The Draft comes to Las Vegas as the Raiders prepare to embark on their first season in the city and at Allegiant Stadium. The celebration – at the NFL Draft Red Carpet, NFL Draft Main Stage and NFL Draft Experience – will include free immersive activities and live entertainment and performances, bringing a new level of excitement to the NFL Draft that only Las Vegas could provide.

“Embracing the city’s personality and iconic locations enables us to create an event that captures the spirit and energy of our hosts,” said PETER O’REILLY, NFL EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT, CLUB BUSINESS & LEAGUE EVENTS. “We look forward to continuing to work with the Raiders, Las Vegas officials and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to create an unforgettable week-long celebration of football for our fans, the incoming prospects and partners and kick off the NFL’s next 100 years.”

Set against the iconic backdrop of the Strip, the NFL Draft Main Stage will be constructed next to the CAESARS FORUM. Free and open to the public, fans are invited to gather at the Draft Main Stage viewing zone to watch the first round selections on Night 1 (Thursday), Rounds 2-3 on Night 2 (Friday), and Rounds 4-7 on Day 3 (Saturday).  The Main Stage will also host daily performances by headlining acts throughout the Draft.

All three days of the NFL Draft will be broadcast on NFL Network, ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ABC – including two nights of primetime coverage on Thursday and Friday.

“The Raiders are thrilled to join the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, the resort corridor, and the local community in welcoming fans to Las Vegas for the 2020 NFL Draft,” said RAIDERS PRESIDENT, MARC BADAIN. “Just as the NFL journey begins on Draft weekend for many young players, the Silver and Black’s journey in the Sports and Entertainment Capital of the World is also just beginning. There is no better place to showcase this special event than on the famous Las Vegas Boulevard, and fans will be treated to a truly unique experience in an iconic location.”

Located adjacent to the NFL Draft Main Stage, the NFL Draft Experience presented by Oikos® Triple Zero will be a free, three-day football festival highlighted by interactive games, the Vince Lombardi Trophy, autograph sessions with NFL players and Legends, brand activations, giveaways and the NFL Shop presented by Visa. At the center of the action will be the NFL Draft Experience Stage, which will feature special performances by Las Vegas talent as well as interactive NFL-themed experiences.

The NFL Draft Experience will be free and open to fans at the following times:

  • Thursday, April 23: Noon – 9 PM PT or the end of round one
  • Friday, April 24: Noon – 9 PM PT or the end of round three
  • Saturday, April 25: 9 AM. – 6 PM PT or the end of round seven

“We are excited to partner with the NFL and the Raiders for our first major event together in Las Vegas,” said STEVE HILL, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND PRESIDENT, LAS VEGAS CONVENTION AND VISITORS AUTHORITY. “Our destination prides itself on creating unforgettable and epic events and experiences and we believe the 2020 Draft will be among the most thrilling events Las Vegas has ever hosted. We look forward to welcoming hundreds of thousands of NFL fans to our world-class destination on April 23.”

CAESARS FORUM, the newest state-of-the-art conference center, located adjacent to the High Roller observation wheel on the Las Vegas Strip, will be host to Selection Square. This exclusive area will feature the team tables where representatives from each club will make their draft selections.

The 2020 NFL Draft will open on Thursday, April 23 with the official NFL Draft Red Carpet, which will be constructed on the famed Fountains of Bellagio. Starting at 2:30 PM PT, attending prospects will make their debut on the carpet. New this year, the red carpet will feature the Draft Red Carpet Stage, an exciting new addition to the opening event.

They need to have a Jets themed "Vegas Draft Buffet."  Its just a salad bar with only one dish... slightly lukewarm macaroni salad.  Right across from the Jets' selection is the typical, extravagant Vegas fair for the other teams.  But all Jets fans are allowed is slightly lukewarm macaroni salad... and the receipt says "it was the last thing you would have selected."  Vernon Gholston is the greeter at your table.

Drunk? Hit the Curraleaf Dispensary on South Las Vegas Blvd, then go to Vickie's Diner right next-door for breakfast. That's a nice start to your day. lol

I’m simple-I’ll go to fat Tuesday’s on the strip and get one of those giant abominations lol
