It was 2001 when the first balloon festival took place in Warren County, New Jersey, at the Warren County Farmers' Fair.

The Warren County Farmers' Fair Admission is affordable at $9 per adult and $5 for children ages 6-12, children 5 & 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 was a smashing success. View photos here!

September 24-26: 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. Location for this event is Warren County Community College, Washington, NJ campus. We will also be hosting the September Shootout Drone Racing Competition, in conjunction with Drone Zone NJ!

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.

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.
