Las Vegas Events in May + Shows You Can’t Miss 2024

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

This month’s two biggest events, Cinco de Mayo and EDC, draw a lot of people. Avoid the May 5th weekend and May 17-19, 2024, if you want to avoid crowds and higher hotel rates.

May starts to get hot! Weather-wise, it’s not ideal for visiting, but between now and summer, it’s more tolerable. We spend this month shifting our focus to exploring the “great indoors.” Sometimes we get lucky and have cool weather to start 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!

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.

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!
