August offers a great opportunity for late-summer deals in Las Vegas

Average temperature low and high: 73° - 104°

As summer winds down in Las Vegas, August is still a great time to be on the Strip. Things are starting to return to normal after the coronavirus pandemic and you should be able to score some great hotel deals and discounts. As always, turn to Lavish Vegas for the best hotel rates.

Things to do in August in Las Vegas

Go for a swim in Las Vegas

As summer continues to heat up, you’ll want to check out the best dayclubs and pool parties in Las Vegas. Some of our favorites, like Wet Republic, Liquid, Encore Beach Club and Marquee are back open at full capacity with big-name DJs, packed cabanas and bottle service. Two newcomers are welcoming guests: Ayu at Resorts World and and Elia at Virgin Hotels. Wear plenty of sunscreen too. The Vegas heat is brutal in August. Stay up to date with the latest information on resort pools in Las Vegas.

See a Concert in Las Vegas

George Strait resumes his residency at the T-Mobile Arena Aug. 13-14. Guns n’ Roses become the first rock act to play Allegiant Stadium with a massive show August 27. Usher continues his first-ever Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a series of dates. Meanwhile, Debbie Gibson & Joey McIntyre (of New Kids on the Block) kick off a run at the Venetian Aug. 26. Psycho Vegas is a heavy metal festival Aug. 20-22 at Mandalay Bay with Danzig, Down and Emperor as headliners. As always, Lavish Vegas has the best prices and availability on tickets for shows around town.

See a Comedian in Las Vegas

It’s a great month for laughs. Jim Gaffigan bring “The Fun Tour” to the Wynn Aug. 6-7, while Ron White joins the Aces of Comedy Series at the Mirage Aug. 14-15. Vegas is full of great comedy clubs and Lavish Vegas is your best source for tickets.

Attend Def Con 29

Def Con has long been a tradition in Las Vegas and this year, the trade show for computer hackers (and those trying to counteract them) runs August 6-9 in Las Vegas. The conference is partially in-person (at Paris and Bally’s) and partially online. 

Watch wrestling or boxing in Las Vegas

The WWE is bringing Summerslam to Allegiant Stadium on August 21. The event is traditionally one of WWE’s biggest shows of the year, featuring big names like John Cena and Brock Lesnar. However, on the same night, Manny Pacquiao faces Errol Spence Jr. at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Wrestling or boxing? The choice is yours.

Fremont Street Experience: Step away from the pool or AC for a few hours with an evening adventure in the not-so-old Downtown. The Fremont Street Experience has a Viva Vision light show, free concerts and the Slotzilla zip line.

Fire off Some Firearms: Las Vegas is known for its gun ranges and if the August heat has you frustrated, blow off some steam during target practice. Battlefield Vegas has indoor and outdoor experiences, ranging from entry-level gun classes for beginners to crushing a car with a tank. The choice is yours.

Free Drinks in Las Vegas: Las Vegas is not the cheapest place to grab a drink. Fortunately, we list semi-secret promotions and weekly open bars. These events are often added with little notice. Review the special offers on our nightclub page when you log in with Facebook.
