Balloon at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

After a one-year forced hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta® presented by Canon is coming back stronger than ever! The 49th annual event was postponed in 2020, the only year it was not held since the event was established in 1972. This year, for nine days in October, the skies will once again be converted into an enchanted world of uniquely shaped balloon rodeos, twilight balloon glows and vibrant balloon-filled skies. General tickets for the 49th annual event — set to take place October 2-10 — will go on sale July 2, 2021.

Tickets will be available for purchase through the Balloon Fiesta’s official website beginning July 2. Tickets for Park and Ride and reservations for hospitality programs will also be available online on that date. Details, including specific health plan and Covid-19-safe practices, will be released prior to tickets going on sale. Consult the website for up-to-the minute information on this must-experience, one-of-a-kind international event.
