October 4 - October 12, 2018 Albuquerque, NM

The Largest Hot Air Balloon Festival in the World!
Put hundreds of giant, brightly colored hot air balloons in the same place on a perfect October morning, have them rise all at once into New Mexico’s impossibly blue sky, and you have one of the man-made wonders of the world. This is why you will not want to miss out on all the fun and activities we have planned for the 2017 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.
