Balloon Fiesta

The Fiesta


The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a world-renowned attraction and destination for kids of all ages. For more than three decades, the first week in October brings the smell of roasting chiles and the beautiful, magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing silently through the crisp fall air. Guests from all over the world come to Albuquerque to celebrate ballooning.

More than 700 balloons will be taking flight from the Balloon Fiesta Park at the fiesta October 7-15, 2017
