Snowmass Balloon Festival


The Snowmass Balloon Festival fills the sky with one of the highest-altitude balloon events in the country. Over three days, 30 pilots compete in challenges such as a distance race that covers the whole Roaring Fork Valley. Highlights include Saturday Evening Glow on Fanny Hill and free music with light show featuring brightly colored balloons lighting up the night sky. All Balloon Festival events are free.

Saturday Evening Glow will feature open balloon baskets (with no canopy) at the end of the Snowmass Mall starting at 7:15pm for families to come and learn about the hot air balloons in a show and tell fashion. In addition, several balloons will be staggered between the mall and Base Village with their canopies in full glow starting at 7:40pm. At the same time, Base Village will feature a sophisticated glow show with elements of fire, music by DJ G6 and balloons taking center stage.

Looking for more than just gorgeous balloons? Check out the Snowmass Wine Festival and the Ferrari Car Show the same weekend!
