The Villages Balloon Festival Logo

May 31 - June 2, 2019


The Villages Balloon Festival is counting down the days until our inaugural event!

This exciting event will feature hot air balloon flights, tethered balloon rides, entertainment as well as retail and arts and crafts vendors. Exciting new food offerings will be available in the “Fly Me to the Food” alley – refreshing beers and wines for sale in the “Bottoms Up Beer Garden”. For the younger crowds lots of free entertainment in The Kids Zone. So much fun, we needed three days to pack it all in!

Just remember, the event goes on – rain or shine! Balloon flights and glows at scheduled times for each day and evening. Check out the Event Schedule for times each day.


Please note that ALL balloon activities are dependent upon the weather. The decision to proceed with each balloon activity is made just prior to that scheduled activity.
