The Balloon Festival in Warren County, NJ is held annually at the Warren County Farmers' Fair. Admission is affordable at $7 per adult and $4 for children ages 5-12, children 4 & under free and parking is also free. Admission is for the Fair and Balloon Festival, so you get two events for the price of one! This year the Fair celebrates 83 years of affordable family fun. The Balloon Festival is celebrating it's 21st year in Warren County.

The event is two events in one - a balloon festival and a county fair and a great adventure for the entire family. Click on the link above to explore what is happening during the entire week of the Fair and Balloon Festival.

In addition to this two-in-one event, organizers have added two more balloon festivals at sponsor, Warren County Community College.

In 2020 the magnitude, combined with the limited attendance, prohibited the Farmers’ Fair from taking place. The Balloon Festival went on to celebrate its 20th year, along with longtime sponsor Warren County Community College at their Washington location. It was one of the few events that took place. The response was overwhelming and the feedback from the public was that they desired more. For 2021, we have scheduled two additional events at the College.

June 3-6: The Hot Air Balloon, Arts & Crafts Festival will take place. Many crafters last year had plenty of time on their hands to create, but very few, if any venues to sell. At a time were additional revenue would have been welcomed. This festival is designed to give local artisans this opportunity.

September 23-26: The Hot Air Balloon, Fun & Games Festival will take place. Many non profits lost their ability for fundraising. We invite those groups to host car shows, set up competitions and hold contests for their group’s fundraising.

The Fair officially opens at 12 noon on Saturday. Opening Day Saturday kicks off a little early, at 8 am, with a Wrestling Tournament (but please note food, vendor booths and exhibit buildings may not be open until the official open time.)

If you are wondering how a Farmers' Fair and a Balloon Festival end up coming together, I guess you can say farm animals and ballooning go way back. Click here for a history of ballooning.

Wednesday night, August 4, the Balloon Festival will hold the 15th Annual Bicycle Balloon Race, with a rain date of Thursday, August 5, 2021. All of the funding raised from biker registrations go toward a new local initiative, the Fred T. Grotenhuis Veterans Community Center. Look for more information to come! Previous efforts have raised funds for the Fred Grotenhuis Memorial Scholarships.

Dont miss the mass balloon launches Saturday, July 31 through Saturday August 7, 2021. Please note, the balloons launch in the evenings. Plan your trip accordingly. See our FAQ's to learn more about the times of day balloons can fly.
