One of the biggest events ever to hit our city is almost here as the NFL Draft comes to town starting on Thursday.

The draft was supposed to have been held here two years ago but the pandemic kept that from happening.

This year’s draft runs from Thursday until Saturday and there’ll be a plethora of events for football fans to enjoy.

Caesars Palace is the main host for the event and the main stage for the draft proceedings is already in place right behind the High Roller observation wheel on the Linq. There’s also a stage set up in the lagoon where the Bellagio fountains are. That’s where players selected on Thursday in the first round of the draft will be ferried to. The NFL Experience for fans will be in the area behind the High Roller at the Linq. There’ll also be concerts for fans to enjoy.

There’s no charge to attend any of the draft events but if you want to attend you need to register for a free pass at NFL.com/OnePass.
