The Story of Bucket List Events

Bucket List Events was founded by avid sports fans and world travelers who thought that travel agencies could be better by providing more memorable experiences. In 2003, our founders started the company with the simple intention of showing people a good time.

Born from passions for travel and hospitality, these became the pillars of Bucket List Events. Our experiences in the world of sports and international travel are what sets us apart from the rest, and drive our desire to show our guests an unforgettable experience. A bucket list should be full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Here at Bucket List Events, our goal is to help you cross several items off that list with great stories to show for it.

Today, we’re a team of entrepreneurs; we’re athletes; we’re travelers; we’re professionals; we’re full of energy, drive and ideas…we are all of these things and much, much more. Our passions for travel, sports, and hospitality bleed over into everything we do.

We’ve been humbled to be mentioned in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Frommer’s Travel Guidesthe San Diego Business Journal, USA Today, Fox Newsand more.

Just wanted to thank you for your help in making such a memorable trip for my dad, uncle, and myself this week.   We had an absolute blast.  Everything from housing, hospitality, and transportation was top-notch.  Know how hard everyone was working to take care of people and can not imagine the logistics of pulling that off, but you all did it, and it was superb.

Thank you for making this happen for us.  Trip of a lifetime with special memories.

They set up things I couldn't have even dreamed of doing, or planned myself. The team was extremely friendly and helpful, you can tell they LOVE what they do. Thanksgiving 2021 in NYC, check that off the bucket list in the most special way ever! Thank You Bucket List!!

Jamie Allen, 2021 Macy’s Client

Very grateful to the Bucket List Events team for helping us craft a wonderful itinerary for the 2021 Kentucky Derby. Despite the ever-changing status of the event given the pandemic, Ben and the team ensured a wonderful and memorable weekend for our group. Looking forward to partnering again on a future event!

Graham Hearns, 2021 Kentucky Derby Client

Extremely happy traveling to the June 2021 Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. Toby was an awesome knowledgeable, personable guide. The tickets to the events and hotel accommodations were superb. This was my first time traveling with Bucket List, but it won’t be my last.

Karen Redway, 2021 Client

A big shout out to Bucket List Events. Thank you for guiding us through the ticketing process and securing us fantastic seats [at Churchill Downs]. We also appreciated all of the wonderful suggestions of things to do while in the area. You definitely went above and beyond. We had an amazing weekend!"

Carolyn Vegas, 2021 Kentucky Derby Client

We really enjoyed our trip to New York to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Ben, Brian and Rich did an amazing job to make sure we all of our needs were taken care of. Looking forward to doing it again next year! Thanks, guys!

Joan Williams, 2021 Macy’s Client

My daughters and I enjoyed the trip of a life time to New York City with Bucket List Events. Their attention to details was amazing! The parade experience could not have been better! We loved every minute of our time in the city. They truly made this experience a dream come true! Thank you so much. I recommend them 100%.

Sheila Wolfe, 2021 Macy’s Client

We could not have been more impressed with Bucket List Events during the Running of the Bulls this past summer. Toby and his staff were exceptional. They were knowledgeable, accommodating, fun, and very inclusive. It was an unforgettable experience, with great memories and great people to share it with. I will look forward to checking more items off my Bucket List with this company!!

Brian Forsythe , 2019 Pamplona Client

Traveled with my parents, wife, and two oldest boys this year and Bucket List Events did not disappoint. First class service! The Hospitality area and base camp were fantastic. Shuttle to and from the course made it stress free. Wednesday practice round allowed my sons to high five the vast majority of current players and legends of the game. The North Augusta home that was secured for us was nothing short of amazing. I would not hesitate to use Bucket List again and quite certain my family will on other future events.

Dr. Gaspard, 2018 Masters Client

We had a 15 person trip to Oktoberfest this September and the whole trip, end to end was brilliant. All of our party was more than pleased with all aspects - Bucket List Events exceeded our expectations and we are thankful for such a fun and smooth trip!!
