ABOUT Enter the Night

Las Vegas artists, cowboys, clowns, and dancing slot machines serve up an all-you-can-eat spectacle of glitter and dust. Inspired by the city’s ongoing cycles of reinvention shaped by the mythos of the American West, Vegas artists push back against romanticized notions of the “heroes” of Western expansion—frontiersmen, prospectors, and casino magnates—to share stories that celebrate rarely told Las Vegas histories, communities, and lived experiences.

Through an immersive installation and performance featuring billboards, neon lights, kitsch, and the desert landscape, Enter the Night reimagines Las Vegas as a stage and space to perform the freest version of oneself in the midst of a chaotic world. This interactive experience will culminate in an outdoor family barbeque you can bet on.

Free, reservation required. Register online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335.
