January promises to be a quiet, affordable month in Las Vegas

Average temperature low and high: 39° - 58°

The city spends part of January cleaning up from New Year’s events and preparing for the spring tourism rush, but those indulging in Sin City nightlife may find benefits on a budget. Covers at nightclubs are usually lower and lines shorter with more room on the dance floor. You could save on hotels and shows too. Just remember to bring a jacket and bundle up!

Kick off the new year with live entertainment. Adele hits Vegas with her first-ever residency on January 21. “Weekends with Adele” runs Friday and Saturday nights through April 16.

The month also brings Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons to the Smith Center on January 16, Tool to the T-Mobile Arena on January 22 and Lionel Richie to the Encore Theater at Wynn on January 26 for the first of 12 shows scheduled throughout the first half of the year. Classic rock act, Styx, returns to the Venetian Theatre with Nancy Wilson of Heart, kicking off a run of five shows on January 28. 

More Las Vegas headliners will be performing throughout the month.

See a Trade Show in Las Vegas

After taking on a virtual format last year, the Consumer Technology Association’s International CES 2022 trade show is expected to bring close to 200,000 people to Las Vegas between January 5 and 8 with proof of vaccination required. It’s one of the city’s largest conventions, both in the number of attendees and economic impact. The show is so large it occupies space in the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Wynn, and Encore, the Sands Expo Center at the Palazzo and Venetian, and CityCenter, which consists of the Aria, Park MGM, and Vdara.

Despite signing a three-year agreement at Virgin Hotels, the AVN Expo & Awards is opting to go fully digital for the second year in a row. The event honors players in the adult entertainment industry.

 

Laugh at a Comedy Show in Las Vegas

Some big names in comedy are coming to Las Vegas this month. Katt Williams takes the stage January 21-22 at Dolby Live (formerly known as the Park Theater) while Bert Kreischer plays January 28 at the Virgin Hotels Theater. The Wynn welcomes performances by Sebastian Maniscalco (January 7-8) and Whitney Cummings (January 15). The Aces of Comedy series will host stand-up shows by Tom Segura, Ron White and George Lopez throughout the month.

Explore a Festival of Lanterns in Las Vegas

Venture off the Strip to the Festival of Lanterns, which illuminates the Cowabunga Bay water park in Henderson. After a holiday program, the attraction shifts to a Lunar New Year theme in January, featuring dozens of handcrafted Chinese lanterns, including a 45-foot-long dragon king in the wave pool.

Catch the Excitement of Live Sports in Las Vegas

Stay up to date with our full schedule of games. The Las Vegas Raiders wrap up the regular NFL season with a home game at Allegiant Stadium against the Los Angeles Chargers.
