Snowmass Balloon Festival

The 45th Snowmass Balloon Festival returns to Town Park this year in a new, socially-distanced fashion. Instead of a festival on the softball field, locals and visitors are encouraged to hit the trails to view the colorful array of hot air balloons in the Snowmass sky. People can also reserve a drive-in space along Brush Creek Road and near the launch site, but no one is permitted to be on the softball field and drivers/passengers are required to stay in their vehicles.

Balloons will launch every morning Sept. 11 through Sept. 13, visible from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. There will also be a night glow event Sept. 11 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and various Snowmass restaurants will be offering brunch and other food and beverage specials throughout the weekend.
