The 85th NFL Draft will host free events at iconic Las Vegas locations, Apr. 23-25. The Draft comes to Las Vegas as the Raiders prepare for their first season 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 level of excitement to the NFL Draft that only Las Vegas could provide.

Set against the backdrop of the Strip, the NFL Draft Main Stage will be built 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 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.

Located next to the NFL Draft Main Stage, the NFL Draft Experience 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. At the center of the action, the NFL Draft Experience Stage 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, Apr. 23: Noon – 9 p.m. PST or the end of round one
  • Friday, Apr. 24: Noon – 9 p.m. PST or the end of round three
  • Saturday, Apr. 25: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. PST or the end of round seven

Caesars Forum, the new state-of-the-art conference center, next to the High Roller observation wheel on the Las Vegas Strip, will host Selection Square. This area will feature the tables where representatives from each team will make their draft selections.

The 2020 NFL Draft will open on Thursday, Apr. 23 with the official NFL Draft Red Carpet on the famed Fountains of Bellagio. Starting at 2:30 p.m. PST, 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.  

NFL Draft Main Stage, NFL Draft Experience Stage and Red Carpet Stage performers and schedules will be announced at a later date.
