Summer festivals are more fun with a group. You can explore San Diego together, travel together, and make memories that will last a lifetime-- but separating your group into cars can take away from the fun of the weekend. Instead of choosing designated drivers and volunteering your own cars, consider booking a personal minibus for your trip to your next summer festival! With a bus, all members of your party can travel together and enjoy the ride while a personal driver takes you to your destination.

Check out these suggestions for which San Diego festivals to attend this summer, along with a few charter bus companies to make your trip complete:


Sun & Sea Festival: July 13-14

The “original Imperial Beach sandcastle competition” is perfect for a family weekend. It’s more than just a sandcastle building competition (although that is impressive enough on its own)-- there will also be a pancake breakfast, a 3k beach walk/run, a designated Kids Zone, and opportunities to sample local foods during the two-day festival. Bring the whole family in with a personal bus rental from National Charter Bus! They’ll make sure everyone travels safely from anywhere in the nation and ensure you arrive on-time for all of the weekend’s events.


San Diego LGBT Pride Parade and Festival: July 14-15

Headed to the biggest Pride Parade in the country? San Diego’s annual 2-day pride festival is one of the nation’s biggest summer parties, a perfect destination for a group of friends looking to support the LGBTQ community. Start with Saturday’s annual parade of over 200,000 participants, then let the party continue to Balboa Park with live entertainment and community resources. GOGO Charters can get your group a minibus and transport you from over 300 nationwide locations.


Stone 22nd Anniversary Invitational Beer Festival: August 18 1 p.m.-8 p.m.

Southern California’s largest beer festival features a selection of beers from craft breweries based all over the world. Head over with a group of family, friends, or coworkers and enjoy samples of rare beers and craft beers as well as food and live music. Instead of choosing designated drivers and asking group members to drive their own cars, book a minibus from Champion Charter Bus-- they’ll provide you with your own bus plus a personal driver who will be your DD throughout the event.


San Diego Spirits Festival: August 25 & 26 2018

This weekend cultural extravaganza features over 70 alcoholic brands and aims to blend the mixology and culinary communities in one big weekend-long celebration. Food and beverage tastings are a given, with seminars, competitions, and parties also sprinkled throughout the itinerary. Secure a designated driver for your group to the Spirits Festival with San Diego Charter Bus Company, one of the top-rated charter bus providers in the area.


Each company is available to take calls and give free quotes 24 hours a day. They can even secure last-minute reservations in case your other travel plans fall through. Call one today to secure your summer festival transportation!
