The Cashman Center or the Cashman Field Center is a 483,000 sq ft (44,900 m2) complex on a 55 acres (22 ha) site in Las Vegas, Nevada. Operated by the City of Las Vegas, it includes Cashman Field and a permanently closed 98,100 sq ft (9,110 m2) convention center.[3] The center was mostly used for local events, but did host national events like the second 2008 Democratic presidential debate and the 2008-09 United States Bowling Congress Open Championships.[4]


The center opened in 1948.[5] The convention center closed in 2017. The final event was the Moscow Ballet in December 2017.[6] The convention center will be replaced by a larger downtown expo center.[7]

The adjacent field complex remains open and in use. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the parking lot was painted with spaces six feet apart to enforce social distancing among the homeless people that were sleeping there while a shelter was being cleaned after an infected person had been at the facility.[8]
