Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 2017
THURSDAY 10TH - SUNDAY 13TH AUGUST 2017
FOUR DAYS OF FREE FAMILY FUN…
The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe’s largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, attracting over 150 Hot Air Balloons from across the globe. The Fiesta truly is a sight that can only be seen in Bristol. Held over four days in August at Ashton Court Estate, the event is completely free with charges made for parking on the event site. Tickets can be purchased here. Alongside the fantastic site of hot air balloons filling the skies, we have a large number of great trade stands, fairground rides and entertainment.
MORNING BALLOON LIFTS
Our morning hot air balloon lifts start early at 6am (Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th) but they are the most magical and special part of the Fiesta. Many regular Fiesta goers enjoy bringing their own disposable bbq’s to cook fresh bacon sandwiches. Alternatively, you can enjoy breakfast from one of our many hot food outlets.
AFTERNOON BALLOON LIFTS
Our afternoon hot air balloon lifts at 6pm are the most popular, so expect it to be busy around the launch field, as families and friends gather from around the UK to catch a site of our balloons lift from Ashton Court and travel across Bristol. Please arrive early, last entry to our official car parks is 5pm. Why not arrive earlier in the day and browse around our trade stands, enjoy a cool drink in one of our five public bars or entertain the whole family in the Cirque Bijou kids area.
NIGHTGLOWS AND FIREWORK FINALE
The most iconic part of the Fiesta are our Nightglows and Firework Finales. At 9pm on Thursday 10th and Saturday 12th a handful of our balloons tether and light up the night’s sky to our specially commissioned soundtrack.
We finish our infamous Nightglow with a Firework Finale.
