With the days getting warmer and the sun sticking around longer each evening, you can practically taste summer. Summer in Las Vegas is the perfect party season, and it’s full of special events, holidays, and other reasons to get together with friends and family. To make the most of your Las Vegas summer, be sure to hit up these events.
The Triple Crown
Whether you’re a fan of horse racing, getting dressed up in your best derby wear, or like to try your hand at betting on the next winner, the Triple Crown is the perfect summer kickoff event.
It all starts with the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs on May 4th. Clique Bar & Lounge will open early at 3pm with a $1- Mint Juleps special. Then, it’s on to the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on May 18th. Lastly, the horses tackle the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 8th.
We’ve been lucky enough to have seen two horses win the Triple Crown in the past few years, with American Pharoah becoming the 12th winner in history in 2015, and Justify following in his footsteps in 2018. To become a Triple Crown winner, a horse must win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes in their three-year-old year. The competition is fierce, with the best horses in the world descending on some of these races.
It all begins with the Kentucky Derby, and this race might be your chance to see the next Triple Crown winner – and the making of history. Host your own Kentucky Derby party or head to a restaurant or bar to watch it with other racing fans.

If great music, stunning art, and an amazing party sounds like a great time, then you need to get your tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2019. The larger-than-life Electric Daisy Carnival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has interactive light installations, carnival rides, incredible stages, and more.

Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas is full of events, celebrations, and entertainment.
