The first closure was Seventh Street between Stewart and Mesquite Avenues, which closed Wednesday. Streets in and around the festival footprint will continue to close leading up to the festival with final fencing being put into place beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25.

In addition, Las Vegas Boulevard will be partially closed at times on Oct. 26 and 27.

  • Oct. 26 from 5 a.m. to Oct. 28 at 5 a.m. Las Vegas Boulevard Northbound will be closed from Clark Avenue to Stewart.
  • Oct. 26 from 11 p.m. to Oct. 27 at 1 a.m. Las Vegas Boulevard Southbound will be closed from Clark to Stewart.
