TETHERED RIDES ARE FIRST COME FIRST SERVE!
YOU CAN NOT SCHEDULE IN ADVANCE.

Chesapeake Bay Balloon Festival is August 5th, 6th and 7th, 2022!

All ballooning activities including static display, tethered rides and balloon flights are weather-dependent.  The decision to inflate hot air balloons is made just prior to the scheduled ballooning activity.  Please note that due to the popularity of our festival, our admissions booths will close when we reach maximum capacity. This is a decision out of our control and made by local law enforcement.  Tickets are non-refundable.
