What Can’t We Bring?

Please do not bring outside food or drink (except water).
There are many vendors selling a variety of food and drink for all tastes and appetites.

All coolers will be checked at the entrance.
If these are found to contain items which are not permitted, you will be asked to remove them.

Do not bring beach umbrellas as they can prove a safety concern.
No weapons are permitted on the premises.

No Pets!

While we enjoy furry friends, pets are not allowed due to safety concerns. Service animals are welcome.
(Certifications for service animals must be present for admittance)

Rain or Shine... the Chesapeake Bay Balloon Festival is open July 31 - August 2, 2020!

 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.
