Hot Air Balloon Festival

June 17 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We regret to inform you that the 2023 Falls City Hot Air Balloon Festival has been cancelled due to the forecast of thunderstorms and high winds. Safety of our guests and pilots is our first priority.
With many of our pilots, vendors and attendees driving multiple hours to come to Falls City, it makes the most sense to call it off now.
If you purchased a ticket online, those will be refunded to your account.
We want to thank our sponsors, vendors, pilots and attendees for their support of this event! Unfortunately with everyone’s schedules its near impossible to reschedule for this year. We will hope Mother Nature cooperates for next year.

Purchase Tickets Here!

Order T-shirts Here!

Coming in Friday night?  Be sure to check out the Stalder Tribute with live music by Terminally Hip!
