Vegas' first DirtyBird BBQ takes over the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center
With so much to see, hear, taste, and feel, it’s safe to say that Collective Zoo’s DirtyBird BBQ was an absolute sensory overload! The unique event, held at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC) this past weekend, was nothing short of spectacular (Photo credit: the D Casino Hotel)

Guests from all over the planet walked through the doors, dressed head-to-toe in colorful costumes and rave clothing, aching for the party atmosphere that makes the venue so famous.

Popular DJs filled the air with ethereal EDM. The lineup consisted of Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Eats Everything, Shiba San, Ciszak, and Dateless. At the same time, Vegas’ most famous food trucks and restaurants doused that air with the finest fragrance: BBQ. (Can we get that in a bottle, please?) Guests enjoyed the all-day event from a grassy area with revolving sprinklers and picnic tables.

VIPs relished the fun in their private beaded cabanas, next to the giant pool and inflatable water slide! Even our owner Derek Stevens and COO Dave Tuttle took over a cabana and did their coolest Baywatch Movie pose with some of the beautiful DLVEC bikini models.

One of the best moments happened when DLVEC owner Derek Stevens took the stage to welcome the diverse crowd to the very special party. Stevens is great at getting the crowd even rowdier, especially when he mentions the after-party occurring at the D Casino Hotel’s LONGBAR (located right across the street)!

It’s rare for an event to satisfy all five senses, but Vegas’ first DirtyBird BBQ was nothing short of spectacular. The Downtown Las Vegas Events Center never fails to deliver, and they still have a full list of upcoming summer events!
