More Hot Air Balloon Festivals to Enjoy in Warren County!

It was 21 years ago that hot air balloon festival was introduced as part of the annual Warren County Farmers' Fair. 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.

Hot Air Balloons - Arts & Craft Festival: June 3 - 6, 2021

Thursday, June 3 through Sunday, June 6, the Hot Air Balloons, Arts & Crafts Festival will take place. Many crafters in 2020 had plenty of time on their hands to create, but very few, if any, venues to sell. At a time where additional revenue would have been welcomed. This festival is designed to give local artisans this opportunity. (Hurricane Date: Thursday June 10 through June 13)
