Snowmass Balloon Festival
Snowmass Balloon Festival Overview
The Snowmass Balloon Festival fills the sky with one of the highest-altitude balloon events in the country. Highlights include a specialized Kid's Zone and the Saturday evening glow, barbeque, and free concert where brightly colored balloons light up the night sky and twinkle on and off like starts. This is one of the area's fastest growing events and is co-sponsored by the Denver Post.
Festival events are free, open to the public, and family friendly. All daytime events take place at Snowmass Town Park with free parking in the Town Park Station lot. Septemberfest and the Balloon Glow will take place in Snowmass Base Village.
“I did a balloon ride in Snowmass a few years ago. It was really an awesome experience. For one, you do get to help with the inflation of the balloon. They do not let you walk inside, but you are able to stand at the opening and peer inside. Awesome! Getting off the ground is nice, but when you get up in the air is when it all happens. We did get up to the 10,000 ft elevation. Now, granted that is only 2000 ft above ground level up here, but how often does one get there in a mostly motionless stationary position. There are panoramic 360 degree views of mountains and valleys as far as the eye can see. Looking down on the action on the ground. I did go up on a very clear, low wind morning, and visibility seemed endless. Although we did not get to view any wildlife, the possibility is there. I would do this again in a heartbeat.”
