Las Vegas Events August 2021

The month of August in Las Vegas is HOT!. There is no sugarcoating the fact that stepping out of the air-conditioned comforts of your hotel and casino to sightsee is like walking into a furnace. August is typically one of the hottest months in Las Vegas with temperatures getting as high as 110 degrees F / 43 degrees C, day after day.

Most major conventions and outdoor event organizers tend to avoid Las Vegas during the months of July and August and that's for good reason. However if you plan to visit Las Vegas in August, it's always worth mentioning that this is the peak of Las Vegas pool season, so remember to pack your sun screen, swim trunks and bathing suit.

Beware: As temperatures rise, it is important to understand the dangers associated with the extreme heat. Follow these steps, it could mean the difference between life and death.

Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated
Avoid direct sunlight
Wear sunscreen
Dress appropriately with lightweight, light colored clothing
