Fall Events and Festivals in Las Vegas with Uber
Las Vegas is putting its hot, sizzling days of summer to rest, and that means it’s time for fall festival season. Milder, more manageable temperatures draw locals outside and encourage visitors to venture beyond the pool.
Unsurprisingly, there are a number of events in the fall, making it an ideal time for people to utilize Uber in Las Vegas. When you’re on your way to these festivals and events, consider using the fare split option to share the cost of your ride with friends. Life Is Beautiful (September 23-25)
This homegrown, three-day music, art and food festival encompasses several blocks of downtown Las Vegas. Headliners at Life Is Beautiful this year include Mumford & Sons, Jane’s Addiction, Major Lazer and The Lumineers, though festivalgoers are encouraged to check out interactive art projects, as well as inspirational speakers like RuPaul Charles. Local chefs serve up dishes far beyond standard festival fare.

Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival (October 7-9)
Jousting, jugglers, and jesters are only the tip of the turkey leg at this year’s community Renaissance Festival. Held at Sunset Park starting at 10:00am each day, the Age of Chivalry is a family-friendly event with several pockets of organized and spontaneous entertainment including comedy skits, dancing, storytelling, games, and of course, sword-fighting. More than 100 vendors will be on hand selling period costumes, jewelry, crafts, and authentic food.
Downtown Brew Festival (October 22)
Festival-goers at the one-night Downtown Brew Festival are invited to taste unlimited samples of more than 200 craft beers delivered with a side of live music and nibbles from local food trucks. Thirteen local brewers will be on hand, including Joseph James and Big Dog’s Brewing Company, as well as dozens of others from across the country.
Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon (November 10-13)
Tie on your running shoes and join thousands of other runners for the Las Vegas Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon for a 5k, 10k, half-marathon or full marathon down the famous Las Vegas Strip at night. All racers need to stop by the affiliated health and fitness expo to check in and pick up race gear, and then they’ll need to get back to the Strip for the day of their selected race. Expect the Strip to be awash in music, lights, and energy as runners pump up to a pre-race concert by Snoop Dogg and enjoy other pop-up entertainment throughout the course.
