The Dansville Festival of Balloons LTD, host to the New York State Festival of Balloons has officially cancelled the traditional 2020 festival scheduled to be held September 4-6, 2020. It is a disappointment for the board of directors, committee and volunteers that have provided hot air balloon festivals for 38 consecutive years in Dansville. In the final decision, the health and safety concern out weight our desire to hold the 2020 festival.
Our next festival will be The New York State Festival of Balloons celebrating the 40th annual Dansville Festival of Balloons LTD. September 3-5, 2021. Be safe, we look forward to sharing the 40th Anniversary with the festival guests, vendors, pilots, student volunteers, musicians, EMS, law enforcement, and volunteer staff in September 2021. Please pencil us in your 2021 calendar.
