Considered one of the best free shows in all of Vegas, the fountains of Bellagio have been entertaining Las Vegas visitors for years. The creators of the Bellagio spared no expense with the fountains’ design and the choreographed water dances it presents all day and all night.
One of the most appealing features of the Bellagio fountains is that, whether you’ve never seen it before or you’ve seen it a hundred times, the graceful dance of water, music and light both awes and inspires. Every show is different with performances choreographed to a variety of music. Sometimes you’ll hear opera (Pavarotti, Placido Domingo) or classical (London Symphony Orchestra, Rachmaninov). Other times, you’ll be treated to show tunes (A Chorus Line, Singin’ in the Rain) or contemporary favorites (Fran Sinatra, Elton John, Faith Hill). During the holiday season, a few festive tunes are thrown in for good measure.
Each performance lasts 2-8 minutes. Be sure to get there 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled time to get a good viewing spot.
Monday through Friday: Every 30 minutes from 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., every 15 minutes from 8:00 p.m.-midnight
Weekends: Every 30 minutes from noon – 8:00 p.m., every 15 minutes from 8:00 p.m.-midnight
