The United States is known for its buoyant spirit. National pride is very important, and every region has its own traditions. However, there are a few annual USA events that are universally adored. Many visitors plan their US trips to coincide with events and festivals they’d like to attend. These recurring USA events take place throughout the year.

Every winter in Utah, the Sundance Film Festival becomes the ultimate gathering of original storytellers and audiences seeking new voices and fresh perspectives. Our annual program includes dramatic and documentary features and short films; series and episodic content; and New Frontier, showcasing emerging media in the form of multimedia installations, performances, and films. We also host daily filmmaker conversations, panel discussions, and live music events. Since 1985, hundreds of films that have launched at the Festival have gained critical recognition and acclaim, reaching new audiences worldwide.

Hosted in Park City, Sundance Film Festival is one of the largest independent film festivals in the world. With additional venue locations in Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance Mountain Resort, and great access to some of the best skiing in the world, it only makes sense to pair the festival's promising films with more Utah experiences. You could even expand your trip to include some of the top film tourism sites in the western United States.

The Super Bowl is as American as cornbread and fried chicken! Once a year, the two top American football teams square off amidst plenty of fanfare. This sought-after event normally takes place in one of the USA sun-belt cities’ large football arenas. Aside from the game, a big drawing card is the halftime entertainment. It normally features an elaborate performance by huge artists like Beyoncé or Madonna. Tickets are notoriously expensive. Some can even priced at over $4,000 per seat! The good news is that you can join in the fun wherever you happen to be in the USA. Simply make your way to a local pub or restaurant that will show the game. Plenty of places also host Super Bowl parties for the occasion. It’s a wonderful way to see Americans at their patriotic best.

The average ticket price for the Super Bowl XLIX game between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks was $5,622.50!

3. Mardi Gras (New Orleans, Louisiana)

The holiday of Mardi Gras is celebrated in all of Louisiana, including the city of New Orleans. Celebrations are concentrated for about two weeks before and through Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday (the start of lent in the Western Christian tradition). Usually there is one major parade each day (weather permitting); many days have several large parades. The largest and most elaborate parades take place the last five days of the Mardi Gras season. In the final week, many events occur throughout New Orleans and surrounding communities, including parades and balls (some of them masquerade balls).

The parades in New Orleans are organized by social clubs known as krewes; most follow the same parade schedule and route each year. The earliest-established krewes were the Mistick Krewe of Comus, the earliest, Rex, the Knights of Momus and the Krewe of Proteus. Several modern "super krewes" are well known for holding large parades and events, such as the Krewe of Endymion (which is best known for naming celebrities as grand marshals for their parades), the Krewe of Bacchus (similarly known for naming celebrities as their Kings), as well as the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club—a predominantly African American krewe. Float riders traditionally toss throws into the crowds. The most common throws are strings of colorful plastic beads, doubloons, decorated plastic "throw cups", Moon Pies, and small inexpensive toys. Major krewes follow the same parade schedule and route each year.

While many tourists center their Carnival season activities on Bourbon Street, major parades originate in the Uptown and Mid-City districts and follow a route along St. Charles Avenue and Canal Street, on the upriver side of the French Quarter. Walking parades - most notably the Krewe du Vieux and Chewbacchus - also take place downtown in the Faubourg Marigny and French Quarter in the weekends preceding Mardi Gras day. Mardi Gras day traditionally concludes with the "Meeting of the Courts" between Rex and Comus.

Golf fans around the world are sure to have this tournament near the top of their bucket lists! As one of the four major events in professional golf, it is an epic show of sportsmanship. It takes place at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia every year. Tickets are a little hard to get because the tournament is so popular. Prospective attendees actually have to enter a ‘lottery’ to secure a ticket! As such, it can be hard to attend on the fly while you tour the USA. However, you can enjoy it on TV with local US golf enthusiasts on your travels. The first tournament, which was played in 1939, was notable for being the first golf event broadcast on radio!

5. Coachella (Empire Polo Club in Indio, California)

Coachella is one of the most beloved music festivals in the US. It’s actually officially called the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. As such, there is an art component to it as well. The Empire Polo Club in Indio, California hosts the festival annually. It is named after the valley in the Colorado desert where it takes place. Here, you will encounter some of the most famous artists and bands in the world! A lot of celebrities attend Coachella as festival-goers as well. It is also a fashion hotspot and sees everyone dressing to the nines. In short – it’s cool to the core. This year, the festival is repeated over two different weekends. Be sure to pack your sunscreen and layers – the days will be sunny but the nights might bring on a chill!

Independence Day (colloquially the Fourth of July) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of Britain, King George III, and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches, and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States.

If you want to take part in a scheduled event, it’s easy to find one. One of the most impressive fireworks displays is the Boston Pops Spectacular. The Boston Pops is a symphony orchestra. Each year on the 4th of July, they play accompanied by fireworks. These are launched from barges in the middle of the Charles River between Boston and Cambridge.

San Diego Comic-Con International is a comic book convention and nonprofit multi-genre entertainment event held annually in San Diego, California, United States since 1970. The name, as given on its website, is Comic-Con International: San Diego; but it is commonly known simply as Comic-Con or the San Diego Comic-Con or "SDCC".

The convention was founded as the Golden State Comic Book Convention in 1970 by a group of San Diegans that included Shel Dorf, Richard Alf, Ken Krueger, and Mike Towry; later, it was called the "San Diego Comic Book Convention", Dorf said during an interview that he hoped the first Con would bring in 500 attendees. It is a four-day event (Thursday–Sunday) held during the summer (in July since 2003) at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego. On the Wednesday evening prior to the official opening, professionals, exhibitors, and pre-registered guests for all four days can attend a pre-event "Preview Night" to give attendees the opportunity to walk the exhibit hall and see what will be available during the convention.

Comic-Con International also produces WonderCon, held in Anaheim, and SAM: Storytelling Across Media, a conference held in 2016 in San Francisco and beginning in 2018 annually at the Comic-Con Museum in San Diego. Since 1974, Comic-Con has bestowed its annual Inkpot Award on guests and persons of interest in the popular arts industries, as well as on members of Comic-Con's board of directors and the Convention committee. It is also the home of the Will Eisner Awards.

8. Lollapalooza (Chicago, Illinois)

Lollapalooza is an annual four-day music festival held in Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois. It started as a touring event in 1991. Music genres include but are not limited to alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, hip hop, and electronic music. Lollapalooza has also featured visual arts, nonprofit organizations, and political organizations. The festival in Chicago's Grant Park hosts an estimated 400,000 people each July and sells out annually. Lollapalooza is considered one of the largest and most iconic music festivals in the world and one of the longest-running in the United States.

Lollapalooza was conceived and created in 1991 as a farewell tour by Perry Farrell, singer of Jane's Addiction. The first Lollapalooza tour had a diverse collection of bands and was a commercial success. It stopped in more than twenty cities in North America. In 2020, Spin rated the first Lollapalooza as the best concert on a list of "The 35 Greatest Concerts of the Last 35 Years". Lollapalooza then ran annually until 1997, and was revived in 2003. From its inception through 1997 and its revival in 2003, the festival toured North America. In 2004, the organizers decided to expand the dates to two days per city, but poor ticket sales forced the 2004 tour to be cancelled.

In 2010, it was announced that Lollapalooza would remain in Chicago while also debuting outside the United States, with a branch of the festival staged in Santiago, Chile on April 2–3, 2011, where it partnered with Santiago-based company Lotus. In 2011, Geo Events confirmed the Brazilian version of the event, which was held at the Jockey Club in São Paulo on April 7–8, 2012. The Argentine version started in April 2014 in Buenos Aires and in November 2014, the first European Lollapalooza was announced, and was held at the former Berlin Tempelhof Airport.
