Labor Day Weekend
August 29th – September 2nd 2019
The goal of the festival is to provide entertainment and enjoyment to our spectators, bring visitors to our community, and share our profits with local charities. Over the years an average of 35,000 spectators per year visit our valley to enjoy the festival.
The success of prior festivals made it possible to share profits with local charities and organizations.
The beauty of an early morning flight is breathtaking as balloons gracefully float over our valley. The thrill of a mass evening launch is a real crowd pleaser. For those passengers taking their first flight, wonderful thoughts and memories will long endure.
Though we are one of the largest events of its type, The New York Festival of Balloons, is a great deal more than hot air balloons. Take a look at the SCHEDULE OF EVENTS for this coming Labor Day Weekend and you will agree that there is something for everyone all weekend long at the NYSFOB
