ABA releases Top 100 Events list

Posted on September 10, 2008

The “Hudson 400th Celebration of Discovery,” “Vermont Celebrates Champlain” and the “Tall Ships Nova Scotia Festival 2009,” are the winning U.S. and Canadian events, respectively, according to the American Bus Association's (ABA) 2009 list of the “Top 100 Events in North America.”

The annual guide for professional travel planners and the general public, now in its 27th year, highlights the top fairs, festivals, parades and shows across North America. While the Top 100 are not ranked, ABA highlights the top U.S. and Canadian events for 2009.

The Top 100 list is chosen from among 524 events nominated by state and provincial tourism officials and CVBs. A 14-member Selection Committee of tour operators bases its picks on the events' broad appeal, their accessibility to groups arriving by motorcoach and other criteria.
