Upcoming Las Vegas Events

Tournament of Kings Dinner Show

Travel back in time and enjoy a show of this medieval-themed display called the Tournament of Kings. This adaptation of the tale of King Arthur includes arena-style entertainment such as sword fighting with a huge feast fit for a king and jousting. The live-action production is usually held at a 900-capacity theater in the round area, regaling the audience in tale of treachery and valour. While the show goes on, guests are treated to a feast of a delicious three-course meal which they are to eat with their hands (as it was done in the ancient times). If you have a knack for the historical, find your way to the Tournament of Kings for a firsthand view of epic portrayals of past centuries in the name of country, honor, and of course, good food.
