The American Bus Association (ABA) has announced that OK Mozart, the annual music and cultural festival held in Bartlesville, OK, has been designated as one of the Top 100 Events in North America for 2011. Inclusion in the Top 100 list, published as a supplement to the September/October issue of Destinations magazine, indicates that OK Mozrt and the Bartlesville area offer an excellent value to both tour groups and individual travelers.
Economic studies have shown that a motorcoach group can leave from $5,000 to $13,000 in a local destination's economy. "Motorcoach groups spend more and stay longer," said Peter J. Pantuso, ABA's president and CEO. "That's why OK Mozart is truly a local economic asset."
Next year's OK Mozart will be held June 10-18, 2011. For more information, go to www.okmozart.com.
