Brightly-colored giants float through the sky on a gentle breeze. This scene sounds straight out of a daydream, but it can be your reality when you watch hot air balloons lift off at the Stoweflake Hot Air Balloon Festival.
Enjoy Majestic Sights at the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Stowe
From July 7-9, 2017, the balloons are launching bright and early every morning at Stoweflake Mountain Resort. The day progresses with food, wine and beer garden, live entertainment, children’s activities, and a ticketed evening launch.
Morning and Evening Hot Air Balloon Launches
Each morning of the festival, the balloons will launch at 6:30 a.m. sharp against the rising sun. Come and watch this first daily launch for free.
Every evening, pay admission for the sunset launch at 7 p.m. Kids 12 and under are free.
Festival and Entertainment Information
The gates for the festival open daily at 4 p.m. The price of admission gets you access to the children’s corner with fun activities like face painting and bouncy houses. You’ll also get access to the food, beer, and wine tent, gift shops, the spa tent, live music starting at 5 p.m., and the sunset launch.
Wander around the festival, or sit back with some beer or wine and watch the balloons sail across the sky in the distance.
