2017 marks the anniversary of 35 years of Bust Loose! around the world for hundreds of thousands of sun seekers and party goers. From the 1st trip to Puerto Vallarta in 1982 with 25 close friends, this company has exploded to hosting hundreds of thousands of Party Goers over 3 ½ decades!

Last month I once again traveled to Mexico and had plenty of time to reflect on what an amazing journey it has been. Watching thousands Bust Loosians on the shores of Puerto Vallarta was life changing. What company ever comes up with ideas like “The Ancient Tequila Ceremony” on the beach……or Burro Polo on real donkeys??? 25 cent cervezas and a week of sun and fun started at $499 INCLUDING Airfare! Boy those were the days. Mexico seemed to be a world away and Bust Loose was the ONLY way to experience it!

Bust Loose!’s success has always been as a result of the great people who work full and part time, along with attracting the right type of Guests who all have one common denominator…. A huge desire to party and have fun! With that formula, this company has become the leader in creating unique programs for the 18-35 young adult market. We have developed, advertised and experienced programs around the world – Mexico, Australia, Thailand, Bali, Greece, and numerous destinations south of the border including Las Vegas, Whitefish, Jackson Hole, Phoenix, Dallas, San Diego….and we are just getting started!

And let’s not forget about our own back yard! Ski and Snowboard trips to Fernie, Kicking Horse Mountain, Banff, Lake Louise and Marmot Basin in Jasper are all part of the yearly schedule we put together. We take full advantage of our short summers with crazy trips like Wake The Lake Houseboating on the Shuswap and Lake Koocanusa as well as Whitewater rafting. Or how about the quarterly Banff Blowouts for that quick fix to a new locale only an hour from Calgary?

Wait – I haven’t even STARTED talking about our biggest and most popular programs – our Mega Club Crawls! If you haven’t been on our world-famous Bust Loose! Stampede Club Crawl then you haven’t really experienced the Calgary Stampede! With our industry partners, we put on the Biggest Stampede Party of the week! Stops include Cowboys, Ranchmans, Knoxvilles just to name a few! The Halloween Howler, St Paddy’s Day and The New Years Gala Tour offer a similar amazing party experience year ‘round.

About 10 years ago, we received a call from a Guest who had to set up a Stag for his best friend. He asked us –“why don’t you run events for guys like me that have no clue what to do?” From that day a new idea was launched. Why not build a Party Bus and do this every weekend? Fast forward to today where we own Canada’s Largest fleet of Party Buses that are on the road hosting Stags, Stagettes, Birthday Bashes, Corporate events and even High School Grad events!

It difficult to put 35 years of experience and memories into one page. The bottom line is that the Bust Loose Legacy has thrived because of our energetic staff and the Bust Loosians that come out in small or large groups to make the programs happen. Stay tuned for more fun filled stories!
