High school graduates are about to have the experience of a lifetime. Yep, if you’re graduating next year, you and your parents can head to Las Vegas to celebrate the huge milestone at The Official Grad Trip—a first-ever, jam-packed, four-night experience exclusively for the Class of 2022, with performances from TikTok phenomenon Loren Gray, music DJ Diplo, singer and dancer Madi Monroe (who is also hosting the event!) and so many more to be announced soon.
You Don’t Want To Miss This Epic Celebration
The extravagant celebration will kick off on June 20, 2022, and will go until June 24, 2022. Besides the star-studded lineup, the festival will also feature luxury accommodations and six private grad-only events that will take place at world-renowned venues. During the day, you can lounge by the pool at the Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas Waterpark, and at night, you can head to the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV to watch your favorite artists perform. Oh, and did we mention that there will be three of the largest themed-parties ever produced? Dress up as a space space cowboy at AREA15, tailgate at Brooklyn Bowl and pull out your fancy clothes for the black tie event at a location to be announced soon—yeah, this is going to be a truly amazing week.
“The Class of 2022 will be the first to graduate post-pandemic and after a long hiatus on social life, we believe tens of thousands of grads and their parents will want to celebrate by traveling to Las Vegas,” says Zach Samson, co-founder of The Official Grad Trip “The Official Grad Trip represents a new era of travel, offering a world-class, domestic experience that is unrivaled for graduates and their parents. For many, this will be their first introduction to Las Vegas, a destination we hope they enjoy visiting for the rest of their lives.”
Get Ready To Make So Many New Connections
Besides partying it up, grads will also have the opportunity to make new friends, network with their peers from across the country and make valuable connections that could last a lifetime—something that’s very important before you head off to college. As for the parents, besides getting a chance to bond with their kids, they will also have a chance to explore Las Vegas and its dining, entertainment, shopping and more. As Andrew Citores—co-founder of The Official Grad Trip—points out, it’s very hard to find the perfect student-parent trip that caters to both demos perfectly.
“We see a significant gap in the student-parent travel market,” he says. “Las Vegas may seem an unlikely choice for a high school graduation trip, but it is exactly the type of experience high school graduates and their parents are craving. Right now, high school grads choose between trips to Disney or trips internationally. With The Official Grad Trip, graduates can experience world-class entertainment, hospitality and live event venues, all within a setting of their peers. The bonus for parents is that this is a trip they actually want to go on, too. Plus, we’re helping to create fond memories of Las Vegas for a new generation of consumer who will look forward to coming back to the destination when they come of age and can then enjoy everything the city has to offer.”
You’re Going To Feel Like Luxury
As for where you’ll be staying, hotel options include MGM Grand, Park MGM, Luxor Las Vegas, Tropicana Las Vegas, Aria Resort & Casino, Bellagio Las Vegas, The Mirage Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, The LINQ Hotel + Experience and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
How do you get tickets, you ask?
