Balloon Fiesta Dates: October 2-10, 2021

Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Tours

The 49th Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is being postponed to October 2-10, 2021.

Are you ready to be part of the biggest, most photographed event in the world? Then bring your tours to Albuquerque for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®. Each year over 500 hot air balloons will fly over our beautiful city and will attract over one million spectator visits.  The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta makes the Balloon Fiesta easy and fun for you and your passengers. For an all-inclusive price, you will receive the following: motorcoach parking on the Balloon Fiesta field, entrance to the event and access to the Chasers Club Hospitality Tent. Your passengers are given the VIP treatment. The tent is heated for comfort and refreshments are served. Don't delay, it's not too late to make arrangements to attend the year's most spectacular event.

When putting together your Albuquerque tour keep in mind the morning balloon events end at approximately 10 am and the evening events begin at 6:30 pm which leaves plenty of time to see all there is to see in and around the city.
