ABA announces Top 100 Events for 2008

Posted on September 6, 2007

The American Bus Association (ABA) released its 2008 Top 100 Events list, marking the 26th year of the annual guide for professional travel planners and the general public. The list highlights the top fairs, festivals, parades, exhibits, theater and shows across the U.S. and Canada.  


While the Top 100 Events are not ranked, ABA does highlight the Top U.S. Event for 2008 and Top Canadian Event for 2008. The Top U.S. event is the 75th Annual Hopi Festival of Arts and Culture (www.musnaz.org/Heritage%20Program/Heritage%20Program.htm) in Flagstaff, Ariz. The Top Canadian Event is the Québec City 400th Anniversary (www.myquebec2008.com) in Québec City, Québec.  


The Top 100 list is chosen from among hundreds of events nominated by state and provincial tourism officials, and convention and visitors associations from across North America. A panel of U.S. and Canadian travel professionals bases its selections on the events’ broad appeal, their accessibility to large groups arriving by motorcoach and a variety of other criteria.  


The full 2008 Top 100 Event list can be found at www.buses.org.
