The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a world-renowned attraction and destination for kids of all ages. For more than three decades, the first week in October brings the smell of roasting chiles and the beautiful, magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing silently through the crisp fall air.
Guests from all over the world come to Albuquerque to celebrate ballooning. Literally hundreds of balloons will be taking flight from the Balloon Fiesta Park this year.
From its modest beginnings in 1972 with 13 balloons launching from a shopping mall parking lot, the Balloon Fiesta has grown to multiple events launching year-round at the custom-designed, 365-acre Balloon Fiesta Park. Our signature event remains Balloon Fiesta—which, with 700 balloons, is the largest ballooning event on earth, the most photographed event on earth, and the largest annual international event held in the United States.
Balloon Fiesta Park is located in Albuquerque, NM north of Alameda Boulevard, one mile west of I-25.

Wonderful and exciting. 10.00 a ticket and 15.00 to park. Arrive a bit early and bring warm layers and blankets. The food vendors are friendly and have amazing options. Bring a bit of extra cash to buy a beautiful piece of art. The night events are just as amazing as the morning. If you can do both if highly recommend it.
the pics speak for themselves. when possible we go every year. this is the most photographed event in the world. we ❤️ to capture pics of balloons we're seeing for the first time. seeing these beautiful balloons up close is a fun experience. brings out the kid in everyone. you will find every type of person & age group represented.
