The First Annual Murfreesboro Hot Air Balloon Festival

The inaugural Murfreesboro Hot Air Balloon Festival will be August 26th from 5 to 9 pm in the historic Oaklands Park.  The event will include a kids zone, VIP area, craft beer tent, live music, and a beautiful hot air balloon glow at dusk.

 

We work to keep this event accessible to families, keeping ticket prices affordable.  We also want this event to be enjoyable for those that attend so we limit ticket sales to 5,000 people.  As a result, this event sells out quickly, so get your tickets now!

DO THE BALLOONS LAUNCH?
No. The event is an evening glow, meaning all the balloons remain on the ground during the event allowing guests to get up close and personal with these gentle giants. It’s a pretty awesome sight to see them all lit up in the evening sky.
WHAT TIME WILL THE BALLOONS BE ON DISPLAY?
The balloons begin to inflate at dusk and glow for around an hour. This means balloons are usually up from about 7:45pm to 8:45pm, conditional on weather.
