Experience Ryder Cup 2020

Cheer for Your Team at Ryder Cup 2020

Here’s your chance to join our 2020 Ryder Cup packages for the most dramatic event in professional golf, which offers no prize money. Golfers from around the world compete for a far more patriotic reward, winning for their home team at Ryder Cup 2020.

While other tournaments like The Masters encourage a quiet crowd, chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” or some version of a European song more appropriate for a soccer match fill the Ryder Cup tee boxes. Players even get booed, making the atmosphere electric.

Everyone loves match play, and the 43rd Ryder Cup is no exception when it returns to American soil in 2020 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. Every two years, players from Europe and the United States go head-to-head in a tense battle, showcasing camaraderie and incredible shotmaking.

Our Ryder Cup 2020 Packages:

You get there, and we take care of the rest! Once you arrive, you’ll enjoy a 4-night experience (check-in Thursday, September 24; check-out Monday, September 28).

All our packages include:

  • Ryder Cup 2020 tickets for the 3-day tournament (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
  • Downtown Hilton Milwaukee accommodations
  • Daily roundtrip transportation to Whistling Straits
  • Professional daily assistance: ask us anything
  • Option to upgrade to all-inclusive hospitality chalet tickets with food and beverage
  • Fan party
  • Daily breakfast

Packages are $3795 per person for double occupancy.

Hilton downtown Milwaukee Lodging

When traveling with Bucket List Events, you will stay in a comfortable and convenient hotel with great amenities and excellent service. We’re proud to offer one of Milwaukee’s historic hotels, the downtown Hilton, to ensure you have the best 2020 Ryder Cup packages possible. Not only does our property offer exemplary service and accommodations, it is within walking distance to the city’s best shopping, dining, and attractions.

Ryder Cup 2020 Site

As one of the best U.S. championship courses, Whistling Straits has hosted the PGA Championships three times (2004, 2010, & 2015) and the 2007 U.S. Senior Open. Now it will become the first public course to host the Ryder Cup in 29 years. The Pete Dye design hugs two miles of rugged Lake Michigan shoreline and is truly breathtaking.

Ryder Cup 2020 will be where the U.S. looks to take the trophy back as Europe currently holds the trophy after a relatively smooth seven-point victory at Ryder Cup 2018.

CMA Awards

CMA Awards: Country Music at its finest!

What could be better than having tickets to see all your favorite musicians perform on the same night? Get dressed up and experience the fantastic talent and camaraderie on display at the CMA Awards Show. Known as “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” the 54th CMAs in 2020 should be the best yet. In 2019, Carrie Underwood was the featured host, with special guest hosts Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton honoring legendary women in country music throughout the ceremony.

The annual CMA Awards show brings together the biggest stars to celebrate the past year in country music. Annual awards are presented for 12 major categories. Bucket List Events can help ensure your CMA package is a memorable experience. In addition to the award presentations, there are spectacular live performances by today’s country superstars and tributes to past legends.

Music City seems to have it all. You can find live music pretty much any hour of the day on Broadway, fun places to hang out and relax, and learn about history stretching back to the early days of America. And don’t forget to try the hot chicken. Area highlights include the Country Music Hall of Fame, Ryman Auditorium, Pinewood Social, country cooking at Monell’s or Loveless Cafe, and a plantation tour at Belle Meade or the Hermitage.

Included in your CMA Awards experience:

  • Two-night stay at a four-star hotel in downtown Nashville
  • Roundtrip airport transfers
  • Daily breakfast at the hotel
  • Welcome happy hour
  • Ticket to the 54th CMA Awards
  • Tour of Country Music Hall of Fame, featuring Studio B and Hatch Show Print

Final Four

Final Four Packages

Few sporting events, if any, can match the excitement and passion of March Madness; this is your chance to book 2021 Final Four packages. Beginning in March, 68 teams compete for a spot in the Final Four. The two semifinal games will take place on April 3, and the championship game will follow on April 5.

What are you waiting for, friends? Jim Nantz is calling.

We are excited to offer you Final Four packages, with the ability to attend the best pregame festivities, four-star hotel accommodations, and more. Whether you’re supporting your team’s quest for a title, shooting for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, or searching for a thank you gift for a corporate client, we have a wide variety of Final Four ticket and hotel packages to fit your exact needs.

Included in your Final Four packages:

  • Two-night stay at an Indianapolis hotel
  • Monday Championship Game Tickets
  • Welcome happy hour on Sunday evening
  • Airport/hotel roundtrip transportation
  • Gameday transportation
  • Daily breakfast
  • On-site assistance, service fees and taxes included
  • Option to add on nights and semifinals
  • Finals package pricing is $2295 per person, based on double occupancy

There’s plenty to do between those high-profile games. A Final Four Fan Fest will take place each day from Friday to Monday at the Lucas Oil Stadium. It features interactive games (basketball and other sports), interaction with athletes and celebrities, music, food, and more. Reese’s Final Four Friday is free for the public to attend, and you’ll get your chance to see each of the four teams practicing.

Given the unpredictable nature of the NCAA Tournament, it’s nearly impossible to forecast which four teams will be playing, but there are always repeat contenders. You should always consider the usual favorites – Kentucky, North Carolina, Duke, and Kansas (though the Jayhawks are facing potential NCAA sanctions). The Wildcats reload with the country’s best recruits every year, while the Blue Devils welcome in a talented class.

Michigan State and Louisville should have strong seasons, and you can’t count out defending national champion Virginia, who won it all in 2019 after being the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed the year before. Texas Tech will look to return to the Final Four after making it for the first time, while Maryland, Florida, and Seton Hall are also teams with preseason expectations.

Augusta Tournament Program

The World’s Most Exclusive Golf Tournament, now in November:

An Experience Unlike Any Other

Golf’s first major is traditionally played over the first full week of April.  In fact, the latest it has ever been played is April 15.  The 2020 tournament, however, has been postponed until November, which provides Members of ClubCorp Clubs a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness a fall-time major.  The new dates are November 9 – 15, 2020.   In most years, the tournament is golf’s first major, but this year it will be the final one.

The golf course will be beautiful as always, and you can expect the hardwoods to be radiant with fall colors.  The average high temperatures in Augusta are slightly lower in November than those in April, and the average rainfall is nearly identical.  You can expect cool mornings, warmer afternoons, and likely a day with a little rain.   Sunsets in November are earlier, so you can expect play to start early each morning of the tournament.

For most golf fans, there’s nothing more memorable than this event.  While you are in Augusta, we can take care of all your tournament needs including lodging, transportation, and meals.  Our program is turn-key, so that you can relax and enjoy the best golf tournament in the world.

If the November Masters is cancelled, or is played with no spectators, we will roll the money you’ve spent over towards the next tournament in April.


The ClubCorp Augusta Program includes:


Exclusive Lodging
We can arrange your lodging accommodations at local hotels and houses.

Shuttle service to and from the course
Enjoy round trip shuttle service to the golf course.

Breakfast and Dinner with our celebrity Chef
Enjoy a Southern style breakfast and cooked-to-order dinner. It’s the best dinner in Augusta!

Open Bar
Enjoy cocktails in the morning and evening

Course access
Witness the most prestigious golf course in the world


Valet service
Avoid the Masters traffic by parking your car at our hospitality site.


Packages by Day

(Includes Valet Parking, Breakfast, Dinner & Open Bar, Course Access)

Day Price Per Person
Monday Practice Round $850
Tuesday Practice Round $1050
Wednesday Practice Round & Par-3 $1750
Thursday Competitive Round $1950
Friday Competitive Round $1950
Saturday Competitive Round $1950

Experience The Masters

The Masters 

The Masters is typically held on the first full week of April.  However, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the 2020 Masters has been postponed to November 9-15, 2020.  This will be a historic opportunity to see the Masters played in the fall.  The hardwoods will be brilliantly colored with red, orange and yellow leaves.  And the players will still be trying to win the most coveted prize in golf, the green jacket.

The 2021 Masters is still scheduled for April 5-11, 2021 on the regularly scheduled dates.  Either tournament is currently available to you.  We offer flexible payment plans for either event.  And if the pandemic causes your event to be cancelled, everything you’ve spent can be rolled over to the next year.

For the true golf fan, there’s nothing more memorable than a trip to Augusta. Let’s make it happen.

Book with us for The Masters in 2020 or 2021. Our program offers:

  • Exclusive lodging, minutes from the course (Choose between the Perrin Bed & Breakfast, Hilton hotel or a private home)
  • Daily access to watch the tournament
  • Hot Breakfast with open bar
  • Full Cooked-to-order dinner with open bar, prepared by our celebrity chef
  • On-site Wi-Fi, Big screen TV broadcast of the tournament
  • On-site sponsors

Packages by Day – November 2020

(Valet Parking, Breakfast, Dinner & Open Bar, Course Access)

Day Price Per Person
Monday Practice Round $850
Tuesday Practice Round $1050
Wednesday Practice Round & Par-3 $1750
Thursday Competitive Round $1950
Friday Competitive Round $1950
Saturday Competitive Round $1950
Sunday Competitive Round $1950

 

Lodging Options:

The Perrin House is our best lodging option, and tends to sell out quickly.  The main house was built in 1863 and is registered as a historical property, originally serving as the plantation home for the land that eventually became Augusta National.  We have 12 bedrooms, each with a private bath.  The Perrin House is located just a mile from the golf course, and is set on 3 acres with pine trees, dogwoods and azaleas.  When you arrive at the Perrin you will feel as if you’ve been transported back in time, as the property oozes old southern charm.

A longstanding Augusta tradition for golfers and patrons alike, local residents offer up their homes to those visiting for the tournament. Bucket List Events has forged friendships with local families who are gracious enough to let us lease their properties for the week. All properties are located in and around the city of Augusta, most within 5 miles of the golf course.  The typical home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, but we can usually find a home to fit any configuration you desire.  For large groups, we can often provide two or more homes side by side.  All homes come with maid service.

The Masters 2019 Packages

Our Masters partner hotel in Augusta is the Hilton Home2 Suites, rated 9.1/10 on booking.com. This modern hotel is located very near the Perrin House. Our rooms come with either two Queen beds or a King, and all room also include a sleeper sofa.

Meet Your Chef: Parind Vora

The Masters 2019 Packages

After a day at the Masters, you will be ready for one of the best dinner experiences in Augusta, prepared by our award winning chef, Parind Vora.

You may have seen him on Chopped on The Food Network. Or on the list of 50 Best restaurants in Austin.  Or read of him in Bon Appetit.   He is a passionate chef who is skilled in the science of cooking.  He also grew up not far from Augusta, and for one week every year he closes down his Texas restaurant operations to bring his culinary talents to our Masters guests.

Augusta, Georgia is not known for fine dining.  Try to imagine 30,000 fans all leaving the golf course at the same time, and then looking for dinner.  You end up with a 2 hour wait to get a table at Olive Garden or Hooters.  To avoid that scene, we’ve created the Perrin House dinner program, where our guests are shuttled back to our 3-acre retreat and served a cooked-to-order dinner by Chef Parind Vora.   It is a relaxed setting and the perfect way to extend your Masters experience well into the evening.  After dinner, we have an open bar and highlights of the day’s round up on the big screen.

 

  • The Masters 2020 Packages
  • The Masters 2021 Packages
  • The Masters 2019 Packages

A hot breakfast before you head to the course.  Then a cooked-to-order dinner when you come off the course.  And an open bar for both meals.  Chef Parind has been managing meals for Bucket List Events for many years, and is a client favorite.  Come see for yourself.

"The best tour organizers and company we've ever dealt with. Toby, Alex, and "ElSalvadore" were all so helpful and fun to be with.

Experience Pamplona

Get ready for the run of your life

There really is no comparison to the San Fermin Festival in Pamplona, Spain. For eight incredible days, the city of Pamplona takes on a playful mystique, consumed by the perpetual state of bliss that the celebration brings. Where else can you mix religion, thrills, parties, parades… and bovines?

With more than a decade of experience in Pamplona, Bucket List Events knows the ins and outs of all things San Fermin. Seeking guidance for an epic run? We know all 826 meters of the course. Looking for the best tapas in town? We’ll show you the way.

From the Chupinazo (Opening Ceremony) to the bull fights, from the tapas to the wine, from exclusive viewing balconies to the intimate Probre de mi (Closing Ceremony), we have you covered. Bottom line, your Bucket List Events staff is at your service to ensure that your San Fermin Festival experience exceeds all expectations.

Lodging options

Our hotel arrangements in Pamplona are among the finest properties in the city. We have found that hotels located within the party areas are often congested and sleep is hard to find, not to mention significantly more expensive. The Alma Hotel and Tres Reyes properties are close to the heart of the festivities, but far enough away that uninterrupted slumber is obtainable. We have staff located on-site at each property to help answer any questions and guide our guests to all scheduled activities.

This is a must do festival. We could not have experienced what we did without bucket list...they are so knowledgeable and make the entire trip stress free. Definitely do the add on to San Sebastián ...that beach was amazing❤️❤️❤️

Julie Hirschfield, travelled in 2019
Florence Tyson

I randomly picked this group off the internet and hit the jackpot. They corresponded with me with details up to the date of our event. They were always available on the telephone for my questions. Very organized. A great way to see an event and let someone else handle the details. Wonderful, friendly staff. Will use this group again. Highly recommend!

Florence Tyson, travelled in 2019
Lucas Gibb

Had an amazing time! As a person who wanted to experience this very old tradition this company did everything I would have expected and much more. The staff’s energy and optimism throughout the several days I was in Pamplona was what made the trip so special. Thank you!!

Great time in Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls. Toby and team were very knowledgeable about the city and the festival. Having a local on the team was awesome. We will book with Bucket List again!

This was my first experience with Bucket List Events and it was wonderful. The team was well organized and readily available. The apartments from which we were able to view the event were perfectly located with plenty of balcony viewing space.  I would recommend Bucket List Events and would participate in another one of their activities. I found the team to be reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. Thanks Bucket List Events!

Toby and his team are amazing! They ensured my husband and I had the best experience possible at the San Fermin festival this year. From the beginning we were happy with the excellent communication during planning and the thoughtful gifts and reminders provided. The team was so much fun and it always felt like a trip with friends. It is clear how passionate Toby and his team are about providing a comfortable experience for everyone. I can’t wait to book with BucketList events again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a great trip without the headache of planning.

Charles Bohanan

Bucket List events did a great job organizing groups for this year's running of the bulls. All of the trolls posting reviews on this page without having actually experienced the company are misplacing their complaints. The San Fermin Festival has been around for centuries. You may have a problem with the event, but don't take it out on Bucket List Events. BLE provided us with excellent information before and during the event. The hotel, the hosts for balcony viewing, the food, the drinks, the coordination for those who wanted to run -- all well organized. I am glad I took advantage of their services rather than trying to go on my own -- I would have never been as successful. They do a terrific job. I would not hesitate to experience another event with them.

Charles Bohanan, travelled in 2019
Jaime Jimenez

I have been to 67 countries and had many wonderful experiences. But Running With The Bulls was an experience of a lifetime that tops all in my book. It had excitement, adrenaline to the max, a touch of danger, lots of constant party and great cuisine from the Mediterranean. I encourage everyone to leave it to the experts to organize your trip. The Bucket List Events did just that.

Jaime Jimenez, travelled in 2019
Henry Valentine

What an awesome experience to Run with the Bulls. Having a professional team like Toby and his team at your disposal, took the stress and anxiety out and allow me to concentrate on having fun. Even the support leading up to the event, like the monthly updates and easy payment arrangement was great. If you plan to participate in any exciting event, look no further than Bucket List Events to organize it for you. Will recommend them to anybody.

Henry Valentine, travelled in 2019
Joyce Yates

We had an amazing time with Toby and team. They made the experience seamless and smooth. We did 4 days in Pamplona and 2 in San Sebastián. The hotels we stayed at were great! We were thankful to have the hotel in Pamplona away from the party scene. They made sure we had all the information we needed to participate in the bull run safely. The 2 days at San Sebastián were a nice way to end a great and exciting adventure. All the guides were very friendly and responsive. Highly recommend doing the tour versus going on your own. You will get way more out of it. It also takes the stress away from trying to figure out all the logistics. Thank you Toby and team!!

Possible to give more than 5 ⭐️s???!! I can’t say enough great things about our experience with the Bucket List Events team and our time at the San Fermin festival. From the initial outreach to the warm goodbyes and personal messages thanking us within days of us leaving, every detail and task was well thought out as well as thoughtful. We will definitely be back with the help of Bucket List Events!

Bucket List Events exceeded our expectations! We can't begin to explain what a great job they did with the Running of the Bulls. There is simply no way this experience would have been the same had we tried it on our own. Kudos to Toby, Rich, and the entire team. We truly LOVE every minute of it. We are looking forward to doing it again. Highly Highly recommend Bucket List Events!

Always wanted to experience the Running of the Bulls. Toby and his team did a fantastic job and were with us every step of the way to maximize the experience. The balcony locations to see the opening festivities (Chupinazo) as well as the balcony locations on Estafeta Street & Dead Man's Curve were incredible. I highly recommend Bucket List Events.

We went to running of the bulls last week and the team at Bucket List Events were very friendly, informative, helpful, and overall made the experience significantly better than we could have had trying to go all by ourselves. They delivered way more than I expected going into it all.

Hands down would easily recommend them for any event they’re offering assistance with. We’re excited to see what other places they can take us to give that top notch experience in another country.

Thanks again guys!

Bucket List Events made the the San Fermin Festival truly a bucket list experience!!! They put us in the BEST hotel. The breakfast and house keeping were amazing, and it is the same hotel the matadors stayed at. They also had some fantastic balconies available for us to view from. Not only from Estafeta street, but also Dead Man's Curve! The staff was always available to answer any and every question, and they were a blast to hangout with! They booked us great dinners and had great recommendations on other places to try. I would definitely recommend booking with Bucket List Events, they go above and beyond to meet every need. It was an amazing experience!

We could not have been more impressed with Bucket List Events during the Running of the Bulls this past summer.  They were knowledgeable, accommodating, fun, and very inclusive. It was an unforgettable experience, with great memories and great people to share it with.

Joining Bucket List Events in Pamplona for the San Fermin festival was hands down the best experience I could have ever imagined and then some!!! Toby and all of his team exhibited the highest level of hospitality while showing all of us how to fully embrace the amazing culture in this city and during the festival. I would 1000% recommend anyone planning their travels to Pamplona to reach out to Toby with Bucket List. It will be an adventure you will never forget!!! ¡Viva San Fermin!

Denny Correll

Not usually one for organized tour types of things I went against my nature and reached out to Toby for one of the stops on a trip I was taking with my son for his graduation. The main event of the trip was Pamplona and the run. This turned out to be a great decision as the convenience and knowledge that came with Toby and the rest of the team at BucketList Events made the trip all that much better. I can not recommend this event and this team enough. Thanks for your attention and making this a great lifetime memory.

The event of the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain has been on my Bucket List, since I was stationed in Sarajevo, Bosnia back in 1998. Due to timing problems, I never made it to the event.

Then I found BuckListEvents com on line, and after doing some research, I signed up with them. What a great decision on my part. Toby Akins, and his great team organized the whole experience for me (and the others who signed up).

I have to admit that I was apprehensive about getting down on the street and actual running with live bulls. Here is how Toby arranges the experience. I arrived at the hotel in the morning, and I had until 3pm to walk around and sight see Pamplona. At 3pm, I was met in the hotel lobby by the guides (who warmly introduced themselves to me), and given my packet (including my cool Run with the Bulls t-shirt). At 6am the next morning, we walked to an apartment overlooking the street where the bulls ran each morning. So, I got to see from above what the actual run looked like. There were other guests in the apartment, who had been there before the previous morning. Today, they were running. Today, I was observing. After the run, some of the runners came back up, and we were able to discuss their experiences, and I picked up some tips.

That afternoon, Toby, and some of the guides took us on the walk of the entire run that had been held each morning. I got to view what it looked like from the street view.

The next morning, we were again escorted back to the apartment, and at 7:50am, I walked down the stairs from the apartment, and out unto the road.

The rocket sounded at 8:00, and a wall of runners started coming down from the direction of the bulls. I started running, whooping it up with the other runners. Soon the bulls were running past, and then they disappeared towards the bull arena. It is a fast experience.

What a rush. Toby and his team make all the arrangements, and we just have to show up to-participate and enjoy. It is a truly professional and well-coordinated endeavor. The entire experience exceeded my expectations. Thank you Toby and Kasey, Kelly, Thecla, LeRae, Fatima and Adrienne for making our trip to Pamplona one worthy of going into the record books.

Ashley Howerton

Once again Toby and his team absolutely delivered an unforgettable experience. This is the second time we have used this organization and they continue to impress. My friends and I had the pleasure of experiencing the Running of the Bulls festival with Bucket List Events this year and I would easily do it again.

The festival itself is such an amazing time, with the whole town constantly buzzing with high energy and good times. If anyone is thinking of going, please go-go as soon as you can, and when you do use Bucket List Events. They had access to some of the best viewing points of the bull runs and arranged the most fun activities in the evenings.

Besides the festival what made this trip an amazing time was the relentless attention to detail and service provided by Toby and his staff. They are all friendly and helpful and they make you feel like you're on vacation with old friends. They make themselves available day or night and they go above and beyond any expectations you might have. In addition to Toby- who is fantastic, we spent a lot of time with Casey, Kelly, and Techla. Words can't justify how much fun we had with these ladies, what a great crew. Fatima, Adrien, and LaRae are also so friendly and helpful to any and everything you need.

I could go on all day about what a great time with had with everyone, so if you have a chance to have a Bucket List Events experience-take it.

Thanks again Toby and the crew!

Kristi Rae Landers Wright

The Pamplona Bucket List Event experience was fantastic from start to finish. Starting months before Toby sent information and guides to help you plan, prepare, and of the history of the San Fermin Festival.

The hotel in Pamplona was very comfortable and the away from the craziness going on in the Plaza. We were greeted immediately by friendly enthusiastic people. Our schedule was perfect allowing plenty of free time. The staff was awesome!!! They even found out where we could buy a replacement suitcase for our son as well as bringing him ice packs after he had a “run in” with a bull after his second run that week.

Even though we booked the midweek experience for Pamplona there were people who only had a day or two weaving in and out throughout the week. I was impressed with how Bucket List Event’s was able accommodate them and to give them a full experience.

Toby, you are awesome! We loved your humor and wealth of information, some even useful. :-p Thank you and Kasey, Kelly, Thecla, LeRae, Fatima and Adrienne for making our trip to Pamplona one worthy of going into the record books.

I was very surprised at the quality of service that Toby and his group provided for my wife and I. Running with the Bulls with them was by far the best decision made in terms of planning the trip to Pamplona. I recommend and mention them when i retell my story of running with the bulls.

Went with Bucket List to the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics. Couldn't have been happier with our experience! Toby and the staff went out of their way for our group with rides to events, dinners, shopping etc. Someone was always available in the lobby of our hotel for help and directions. The team at Bucket List was committed to making our trip a great experience. If we are lucky enough to go to Beijing in 2022, we will definitely be calling Toby!

Get access to some of Oktoberfest’s most exclusive beer tents and much, much more with Bucket List Events!

The Bucket List Oktoberfest Experience

Despite what our mothers told us, all those years of beer drinking have been good for something! When you head to Munich with Bucket List Events, you’re traveling with the locals: we’ve got sold-out beer tent reservations, the lowdown on the official Oktoberfest after-party, where the best sausage is, and even where to get some awesome vegetarian food. Our guests come from all over the world to enjoy Munich’s perfected beer, and they leave having made friends and memories for life.

Richard Seeley

My family and I (group of 8) just returned from Munich and Oktoberfest. It was an absolutely amazing experience. Much thanks must go to Nataliya, who helped arrange the whole thing for me. From our first interaction through to her execution of the event itself, her service was flawless. She is an exceptional host and organizer. In addition, her colleague on the day of the event, Angus, was a fabulous host and between he and Nataliya, every need of my family was seen to through our time with them. I'd thoroughly recommend Bucket List Events based upon my experience of working with them. Thanks again Nataliya and Angus...Prost!

Our group had an awesome time Saturday and Sunday at the 2019 Munich Oktoberfest! Nataliya went out of her way to greet us when we arrived at the train station to make sure we got to our hotel without problem. Not an easy task with 6 people plus luggage! Both Nataliya and Rich, along with all the other guides, were very attentive at our fest events. I couldn't have felt more safe! I would definitely recommend Bucket List Events to others!

We recently took a sister/Mom trip to Oktoberfest. The event is ginormous and we didn’t know where to begin in making our arrangements. Bucket List Events took care of everything for us.

We both enjoyed our Oktoberfest experience, thanks greatly to the folks at Bucket List Events. Thanks to Toby, Mike, Nataliya, and all the others who helped out. It was a great way to go - they made arrangements for our two nights at the different tents, made sure we had transport to and from the airport. The tour to the castle was awesome. We would highly recommend this company for any major events they participate in. Who knows... may be back again!

Toby and his staff were incredible. We have everything arranged for us from airport pick-up's, great hotel where you walk outside and there was the Oktoberfest parade. The hotel location was key for us and being only 2 blocks from the festivities was great and the hotel was wonderful too. We had a lovely day touring 3 castles privately and our tour guide, Nico was amazing too. The trip was fantastic and Toby and bucket-list did a phenomenal job. Thank you for helping us create great memories.

OMG! I have been raving about Bucket List since I got back from my Oktoberfest trip! It was the best vacay of My Life! I will be using Bucket List again to go to Spain to Run with the bulls! The staff, the accommodations, well worth it. I believe I saved money doing my Oktoberfest trip with them.

Jeromy Harper

Just got back from Oktoberfest 2018, and our 1st trip with Bucket List Events. The entire trip was a blast, the organizers were a great help and a ton of fun, and there was no shortage of things to do without feeling rushed or bored. Between the tent reservations, the bike tours, and the awesome crew, I can definitely say there's no way we could've packed in such a great time on our own.

Just one example of the amazing hospitality: Our flight arrived in Munich a little late for the welcome dinner, and we were half expecting to not be able to make it... however Fatima was waiting at our hotel to meet us and walk us to Augustiner-Keller to join up with everyone else for an incredible dinner & beer we easily could've missed out on otherwise.

I'll definitely be recommending you guys to friends & family, and would love to book more trips with you. Toby, Fatima, Nataliya, Kendra - thank you all for an awesome time and a week of great memories!

Ryan O’Heron

My wife and I had a blast at Oktoberfest in Munich thanks to Bucket List Events! Kendra, Rich, and the rest of the Bucket List team were very organized, experienced, and had so many fun things planned throughout! It was so much fun getting to experience the best things germany had to offer in 3 days without all the stress and exhaustion required to research and plan something like it on my own! I especially liked how they spaced out the events so you got time to explore and do other things in addition to the events they planned! We will definitely be looking to plan another bucket list event in the near future!

Greg and I loved our time in Munich with Bucket List Events. Even before the trip, we knew we would be in great hands. Toby and his team were there from check-in to check-out to answer questions, provide recommendations and ensure everyone had a great time. The tent reservations were stellar! Greg and I both stated this will be a repeat trip for us in the future. Thank you for the expert planning and wonderful hospitality.

Went with Bucket List to the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics. Couldn’t have been happier with our experience! Toby and the staff went out of their way for our group with rides to events, dinners, shopping etc. Someone was always available in the lobby of our hotel for help and directions. The team at Bucket List was committed to making our trip a great experience. If we are lucky enough to go to Beijing in 2022, we will definitely be calling Toby!

The team at Bucket List Events saved my bacon when my son and I wanted to go to the 2018 Champions League Final in Kiev. The logistics of arranging the tickets, accommodation and ground transport for such an event can be harrowing if ‘going it alone’, to say the least (we tried!). When we found out about Bucket List Events they made it entirely stress-free. The whole package - top-notch seats at the stadium, accommodation in the perfect location, airport transfers and guided tour of the city was brilliant. My only regret was we missed the traditional Ukrainian meal arranged by Bucket List Events on the first night due to our late arrival!

2022 World Cup in Qatar

Experience the world’s biggest sporting event

The world’s most prestigious and highly anticipated international soccer/football competition is back – 2022 World Cup Qatar. Every four years the world is riveted, with more than half of the world population tuning in to watch at least one game. Make 2022 the year that you see the World Cup for yourself, in fascinating Qatar, no less!

The 2022 FIFA World Cup dates are set for November 21 and conclude on December 18. Because Qatar is a desert country located relatively close to the equator, the tournament will be held during the winter so that the players and visitors won’t need to suffer the heat of the Arab sun.

The 2022 World Cup is set for November and December in seven cities throughout the tiny Middle Eastern country in the Persian Gulf – the first World Cup ever to be held in a predominantly Arab country. Especially given the unprecedented scale and distances of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the close distances between matches for Qatar means that visitors will never be far from the action!

The rigorous bidding process and infrastructure requirements for hosting the World Cup is putting pressure on Qatar to carry out social reforms that are certain to set a progressive example for the rest of the Middle East. Take advantage of this incredible opportunity to witness history, follow your favorite teams, and visit this unique and beautiful country.

 

What’s included?

You fly there; we take care of the rest! All Bucket List Events packages to the 2022 World Cup include:

  • Conveniently located accommodations at a 4-star hotel
  • Concierge option to add match tickets

We’ll get you to Wimbledon 2021

Why Wimbledon?

Britain is the birthplace of tennis, so the UK’s most prestigious tennis tournament is rich with tradition. Wimbledon is the last remaining international tennis tournament that uses grass courts (trimmed to precisely 8mm), something the organizers are very proud of. Approaching the grounds, you will feel a huge sense of history and anticipation. Old customs are preserved in polite titles such as Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Doubles.

It’s hard not to be star-struck at Wimbledon 2021. Not only does the tournament feature all of the most famous names in international tennis, but the every year the event is attended by celebrities, politicians, and royalty. Yet at the same time, Wimbledon is fiercely egalitarian – it’s the only major international sporting event that reserves normal-priced tickets to be sold the day-of on a first-come-first-served basis. It is truly an event where the elite of society and everyday folks come together to watch the matches.

Presidential Inauguration 2021 Schedule & Balls

Day 1: Tues Jan 19, 2021: Black Tie & Boots Presidential Inaugural Ball

This is hosted by the Texas Society.  It’s like the other big balls, but the only one that happens the night before the swearing-in. George W. Bush did make an appearance here.

Typically starts at 7 PM at the Gaylord National Resort


Day 2: Wed Jan 20, 2021: Swearing-In Ceremony

The official ceremonies of Inauguration Day start at noon on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol with the vice president-elect and president-elect taking the Oaths of Office administered by the chief justice of the Supreme Court. The President then gives a speech known as the inaugural address.

These are the ticket options for the swearing-in ceremony:

  1. Mall Standing
  2. Closer Standing  (North, South, West)
  3. Seated

 

Following the swearing-in ceremony, the President and Vice President will lead the inaugural parade approximately 1.5 miles from the Capitol to the White House. Once there, the presidential entourage will review the parade from an enclosed stand.

Official Presidential Inaugural Committee Balls

There will be 2 to 9 distinct balls where the POTUS will make an appearance.

Each inaugural committee decides how many official PIC balls to host. The President and First Lady will come out, make an appearance at each and usually share a first dance in front of the crowd. Various musical guests also perform. These are held at the Washington Convention Center and other venues in the area. There were three balls in 2017, known as Liberty ball, Freedom ball, and a Military ball.

There are 10 to 20 other balls, but they are not official Presidential Inaugural Committee balls.  [Tickets NOT for sale here]
