ABA unveils 28th annual Top 100 events list

Posted on September 3, 2009

On Thursday, the American Bus Association (ABA) released the 2010 Top 100 Events in North America list, naming Fiesta San Antonio the "Top U.S. Event" and the Canadian Naval Centennial as the "Top Canadian Event."

The 28th annual version of ABA's list is a key guide for professional travel planners and the general public. The list highlights the top fairs, festivals, parades, exhibits, theater and shows across North America. While the Top 100 Events are not ranked, ABA does highlight both the Top U.S. and Top Canadian Events for each year.

The Top 100 list is chosen from more than 500 events nominated by state and provincial tourism officials, convention and visitors bureaus and destination marketing organizations from across North America. A 17-member Selection Committee of tour operators bases its selections on the events' broad appeal, their accessibility to large groups arriving by motorcoach and a variety of other criteria.
