City of Las Vegas' longest running civic event, Helldorado Days is an annual cowboy-themed outdoor charitable festival and tribute to the Wild West. The event began in 1935 and is produced by the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge with 100 percent of proceeds being donated to children, veteran and special need  charities.

The Helldorado Days Rodeo week is a five-day festival packed with rodeo action and Western tributes. The event begins with a locals rodeo followed by three days of PRCA. competition and ends with an entirely new day of Fiesta Del Charro. Onsite, there is a lively, family-friendly carnival atmosphere with a whiskerino contest, live music, exhibits, vendors, food and more.
