Swan Land Company is proud to sponsor the C.M. Russell Museum at the National Finals Rodeo Cowboy Christmas. The National Finals Rodeo is now in its 34th year in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Wrangler NFR moved from Oklahoma City to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1985 upping the purse from $900,000 paid in 1984 to $1.8 million allotted to the rodeo cowboys in 1985. The following year in 1986, the NFR Cowboy Christmas had its debut. The free event, which now has over 300 exhibitors from around the nation has something for everyone. Shopping for everything from stock trailers, western saddles, cowboy hats and cowboy boots, clothes, jewelry, western furniture, fine artwork, feed and supplements, just to name a few. Interactive displays keep the attendees entertained with lariat handling, live artist demonstrations, such as at the C.M. Russell Museum booth, and artisans making cowboy hats and leather tooling. In addition, located upstairs alongside the RMEF Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Expo, is the Junior World Finals at the Wrangler Rodeo Arena. This ten-day event is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. December 5th through December 21st.
