Las Vegas Events in May + Shows You Can’t Miss 2022

Visiting Vegas this month? These are the Las Vegas events in May you shouldn’t miss.

The two biggest events this month are Cinco de Mayo and EDC, which will bring in tons of people. If you want to avoid crowds and higher hotel rates, avoid visiting on May 5th and between May 20-22nd.

May also starts to get hot! Weather-wise it’s not ideal for visiting, but between now and summer, it’s still tolerable. We spend this month shifting our focus to exploring the “great indoors”. Sometimes we get lucky and have cool enough weather to go night climbing, but there’s no guarantee.

If you’re visiting in May, we put together a monthly guide of all the happenings and organized them by date and category. Hope you find this helpful!

The Best Farm to Table Restaurants in Las Vegas

Here are some of the best farm-to-table restaurants in Las Vegas to check out:

Tips for Visiting Las Vegas in May

  • Get tickets as soon as you know what shows you want to see. Popular shows & concerts sell out fast!
  • Read all the fine print before heading to a show – some have restrictions on what you can bring with you.
  • Save money on multiple attractions, and get the All-Inclusive or Explorer Pass.
  • Sunscreen is a must, especially if you’re doing outdoor activities.
  • Plan to arrive early for meals and shows. It takes longer than you think to get from one spot on the strip to another. Give yourself a buffer.

What to Wear in Vegas in May

March is warming up, especially during the day, but the AC keeps the casinos cold.

  • Bring layers – layers are essential for visiting Las Vegas. As the temperatures get hot outside, they crank up AC inside. These are our favorite travel jackets.
  • Dressy clothes – pack them if you plan on going clubbing or eating at nicer restaurants. You will see a mix of tourists in casinos dressed both up and down.
  • Shoes – If you’re going out at night, you’ll probably bring heels or dress shoes, but make sure you bring a pair of comfortable travel shoes as well. The casinos are massive, and you end up walking a lot to get from place to place

Is May the Best Time to Visit Las Vegas?

If you’re mostly going to be indoors on the Strip, visit any time of the year since the temperature won’t matter.

For outdoor activities like hiking and climbing, you should visit between November and March. But if you’re here for the pool parties and lake life, this is the time!
