Our brand-new Special World Events digital brochure is live now and it will give you a sneak peek of unique, unrivaled experiences across the world. The rainbow from hundreds of colorful hot air balloons floating in the sky at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta… the awe-inspiring precision of rows of drummers tapping and stepping perfectly in sync at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo… the powerful emotion behind a play being performed as a vow to God during the once-in-a-decade, centuries-old Oberammergau Passion Play.  

These events have one thing in common: the excitement in knowing you are a part of history. Get to know some of the special events below: 

 

Oberammergau Passion Play

 Speical events blog Ober

Tour Summary In 1634, the villagers of the small hamlet of Oberammergau, Germany made a promise to God: Save us from the plague, and we will perform a Passion Play telling stories of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection every 10 years. The deaths from the plague ceased, and the residents of Oberammergau remain dedicated to this vow centuries later.
Tour DatesMay 2022 – September 2022
Event Trivia On the Ash Wednesday ahead of the Passion Play, the “Hair and Beard Decree” is in place. This decree bans most performers in the show from getting haircuts for 15 months prior to the first performance so they more authentically fit the look of their roles.

Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Tour Summary The 70-year-old Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Scotland is the most well-known tattoo in the world. In military terms, a tattoo began simply as a bugle or drum call signaling soldiers to their barracks for the evening. This music has since evolved into elaborate, theatrical shows with extended performances including drummers, costumed dancers, drill teams, and other performers, military and civilian alike, alongside the musicians.
Tour Dates August 2022
Event Trivia The Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo is very dedicated to supporting charities. In 2020, they donated £340,000 to military charities across the UK.
