Lake Havasu Balloon Festival 2024

People tend to think of Albuquerque when they hear "hot air balloons". But you do not need to travel all the way to New Mexico to enjoy these beautiful flights of fancy in the sky. Fortunately, Lake Havasu plays host to its very own amazing festival right here every January.

Gates open to the public at noon on Thursday, January 18th. A special night glow takes place at 6:30 pm every night but Sunday. Guests may also enjoy a mass ascension every morning at 7:45 am except for Thursday (weather permitting). Either one of these will make your mouth drop open in amazement. But if you manage to get to the field for both on any (or every) day of the event, you are in for a real treat.

Carnival Row opens up at noon on Thursday and 9 am throughout the rest of the festival. Vendors also open up for business at the same time. Make sure you stop in to check out this year's merchandise. Tethered and untethered rides will be offered each day of the festival. However, keep in mind that the weather may turn sour for balloon riding at any time. Tickets for each may be purchased on the day you wish to ride. They are offered on a first-come/first-served basis. Other fun activities include face painting, live music, games, car shows, comedy shows, K-9 demos, magic, and much, much more.

Ticket Information

General admission tickets cost just $20 per person (ages 11+). This ticket grants its holder access to the festival grounds for all four days of the event. That's right! Pay one price for the entire four days. Kids ages 10 and under get in for free. Now, if you wish to experience the festival from a special perspective, opt for the VIP treatment. A VIP Gondola ticket allows you access to the VIP tent (which includes a cash bar), breakfast, and dinner for the day. These VIP tickets cost $65 for Friday or Saturday and $25 for Sunday. Tickets may be purchased at the store during regular store hours through January 16th or online.
