Quechee VT Hot Air Balloon, Craft & Music Festival 2019

Quechee Balloon FestivalThe 40th Annual Quechee, VT Hot Air Balloon, Craft & Music Festival is happening this summer, June 14-16, 2019.

This fun-filled weekend offers activities, food, entertainment and more for the entire family. This is the longest running hot air balloon festival in New England!

You can experience the hot air balloons yourself with either tethered rides or ascension rides offered at specific times throughout the festival. The Ascension rides are currently sold out, but you can book your tethered balloon ride on the field during the festival. During a tethered hot air balloon ride, the balloon is held to the ground by ropes. You float up to 50 feet in the air to get a great sense of being in one of the balloons with the security of being attached to the ground. It's a wonderful experience for children, too!

Admission is good all weekend. So however long you stay or as often as you go throughout the three days, you only pay once. They even have a special price for Fathers on Father's Day! Here are the details on festival admission and parking.

So if you're in the Upper Valley / Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region this weekend, come enjoy a summer hallmark of this area at the Quechee Hot Air Balloon, Craft & Music Festival.
