10 Free Shows & Entertainment in Vegas
Open 24/7 just off the front desk of the Bellagio, the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens feature breathtaking displays of flowers and shrubberies year-round. A specialized staff changes the displays with the coming of the seasons - winter, autumn, summer, and spring all having their very own exhibition of floral art for visitors to snap pics in and enjoy. This free garden is 14,000 square feet, so prepare to be amazed.
Colorful lights, waterfalls & fountains, immense screens depicting underwater scenery, large flames, and moving statues consist of this roughly 10 minute performance. Located in Caesars Palace Forum Shops, anyone can view the free show while taking a stroll through the stunning shops with architecture reminiscent of Rome. While it might be seemingly cheesy for adults, a few puffs of the right greenery will have you either immersed into the imaginative show or containing a multitude of giggles with your travel buddy.
If seemingly window shopping in the canals of Venice isn’t satisfying enough, then perhaps free performances from opera singers, jugglers, actors, dancers, musicians, stilt walkers, and living statues will make the experience more enjoyable. They’re there for your entertainment and can be found roaming and performing through the Shoppes throughout the day.
Fremont Street features an immense overhead display that creates a visual spectacle every hour once the sun goes down. Shops line the street on both sides, and a zipline called SlotZilla allows the brave to fly above the heads of shoppers and beneath the overhead lights (unfortunately, SlotZilla does cost money). There’s even live music if you catch this experience on the right night.
At the Cosmopolitan, the permanent installation of art free for the public to view is called Wallworks. Other art collections are also featured(Such as the Talon Club Collection, The Golden Age of Glam, etc.) along with every-changing exhibits of artists from across the globe. Each piece will intrigue and inspire the imagination – so if planning on consuming a sativa that increases creativity, don’t forget to check out all the art at the Cosmopolitan while doing so.
This curbside attraction in the front of the Mirage offers viewers a spectacular fire show synced with a tribal soundtrack.

While lovely to walk through during the day, a night walk at The Park (an MGM Resorts Entertainment Destination) features colorful lighting pointed at immense art and architectural structures.
