12th Annual Arizona Balloon Classic

February 2 - February 5

balloon festival

The 12th Annual Arizona Balloon Classic will launch Friday, Feb. 2, from Goodyear Ballpark. If an array of brightly colored hot air balloons dotting the sky aren’t enough to draw crowds, the three-day festival is packed with activities, including a Street FoodFest, stunt shows, shopping and live music.

The 12th Annual Arizona Balloon Classic offers something for everyone. Highlighting the festival is an array of colorful hot air balloons. In fact, festival goers have a unique opportunity to be part of the festival, flying among the balloons in the early morning ascensions and tethered rides throughout the day and during evening glows. Each day is packed with activities, including the Street FoodFest, live music, Desert Winds Kite Festival, BMX Stunt Show, Tim H. Murphy Photo Exhibition, dozens of retail and food vendors, and a Family Fun Zone.

New this year is the “After Glow” Party on Friday night with house music, a laser light show, and tethered rides (must be age 21 and older to attend).
