The One Of A Kind Festival You Won’t Find Anywhere But Pennsylvania
Sail high above the rolling Pennsylvania countryside in a colorful hot air balloon or simply relax in a lawn chair and watch as 20 unique balloons take flight at this unforgettable summer festival that also features a full menu of activities – from helicopter rides to a kids’ activity center – for the whole family.
The skies over Chester County will transform into a colorful masterpiece when the Chester County Balloon Festival takes flight June 23-25, 2017.
Celebrating its 11th year in 2017, the Balloon Festival provides adventurers with the perfect opportunity to experience the thrill of a ride in a hot air balloon.
Enjoy an untethered hot air balloon ride, an unforgettable 60 minute adventure, over the Chester County countryside or...
Stay tethered to the ground for a five minute in the air experience that will give you just a taste of what awaits in the sky aboard a hot air balloon.
The Chester County Balloon Festival promises plenty for you to do on the ground, too. Bring your lawn chair and watch the hot air balloons as they take flight.
Experience a "walk through the balloon" at this non-profit event that benefits several local charities, including the Chester County Hero Fund.
Marvel at the numerous hot air balloon shapes - a bunny, a pig, a space shuttle, and a birthday cake - as they soar overhead.
Explore the rest of the Balloon Festival, which features a plethora of activities, including a Kids Zone, monster truck rides, kite demonstrations, a wine and beer garden, a fire truck parade, and...
Helicopter rides. Get a bird's eye view of Chester County aboard a helicopter. Purchase your ticket - which costs $60 - for a helicopter ride early as they typically sell out quickly.
Enjoy scrumptious food from a variety of food trucks (no coolers are allowed on the airfield), listen to live entertainment, and...
Cap off your day by watching the spectacular balloon glow as the sun begins to set.
A firework show is set for Saturday evening at 9:30 p.m. weather-permitting. (The fireworks will go off on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. if the weather does not cooperate on Saturday.)
Purchase one-day passes from now through June 21 for $12.50 for adults and $5 for children. From June 22-25, 2017, the one-day ticket prices cost $15 per adult and $5 per child. Children six and younger are free.
