Bellagio Fountain Holiday Schedule
For holidays, throughout the year, the Bellagio Fountains follow a Saturday schedule.
This means the shows are as follows:
- One fountain show every 30 minutes from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM
- One fountain show every 15 minutes from 7:00 PM to 12:00 AM
There is not a clear list of holidays that outlines which days the fountain will follow this schedule. You can expect, however, that any federal holiday will count. This means if you visit Las Vegas for a long weekend over MLK, President’s Day, Memorial Day, or the Fourth of July, you will likely encounter the fountain’s amended holiday schedule.
Bellagio Fountain Christmas Schedule
During the winter and Christmas holidays, the Bellagio Fountains follow a slightly different song list as well. The holiday songs are also all classics with a few contemporary hits in the mix.
- “Carol of the Bells” performed by the Los Angeles Master of Chorale
- “Hallelujah Chorus” performed by The Tabernacle Choir
- “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Johnny Mathis
- “O Holy Night” by Placido Domingo
- “Santa Baby” by Madonna
- “Sleigh Ride” by Johnny Mathis
- “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” by Johnny Mathis
Here as well, the Bellagio does not provide a set time for which days count as part of the holidays and thus get this altered song list and fountain show schedule but you can be fairly certain this will be the song list a few weeks before Christmas through New Years Day.
Where to Watch the Bellagio Fountain Show
Most Vegas visitors will watch the fountain show from the walkway along Las Vegas Blvd. If this is what you plan to do, it can be wise to try and show up in front of the fountains at least a few minutes before a show starts. Once the music begins to play and the fountains startup, a sizable crowd will gather.
In this crowd, it can sometimes be hard to see the whole fountain area. Getting there early will help ensure you have an ideal spot. This is especially true on weekends and holidays.
Admire the Fountain From a Nearby Restaurant
If you’re not interested in crowding outside by the fountain, consider booking a table at one of the many restaurants with views of the fountain. There, you will be able to enjoy the show in a quiet, lush setting, with excellent food, and while sipping on a good drink (should you desire one).
The Bellagio Hotel and Casino has quite a few restaurants with views of the fountains. The food options are diverse too. Here are the restaurants that have views of the fountain. For anyone looking to get the best view of the fountain, ask to sit outside. These restaurants all have patios that are nearly always open (again, thanks to Las Vegas’ stellar weather).
