The longest continuously running Hot Air Balloon Festival in New England is at its traditional location on the Quechee Village Green.

It features over 20 hot air balloons, with flights scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 13th; 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 14th and Sunday, June 15th (always weather and wind permitting). Balloon rides are now available to purchase on our website prior to the event. Don’t miss this exciting event featuring continuous music and entertainment for all ages, and over 60 craft artisans and commercial vendors. Children’s activities include train rides, a bounce house and more. And of course there will be festival food, a beer and wine garden, and more surprises!
6:00 p.m. Friday evening and 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
There are five flights over the weekend–wind and weather permitting–during which over twenty colorful balloons ascend over the Quechee valley and beyond. What a sight!
