September 23-24, 2022 at Dodd's Park Champaign, IL
Each day includes a launch of up to 15 balloons, taking off from the event grounds
and participating in a challenge.
Bring the kids out to enjoy carnival rides, games, and other attractions.
Get a taste of riding in a hot air balloon by taking a tether ride.
All sorts of fun for the kiddos.
Delicious food and beverages.
A highlight of the festival is when all the balloon light up at night.
Day one of the Champaign County Balloon Festival is complete. The rain was unexpected, but we were excited to see so many people come out and have a good time in spite of the weather. In fact, we are so pleased that we want to reward those that paid a gate fee Friday evening by giving free admission on Saturday to each individual that presents their Friday night wrist band at the gate. You must have your band to get free entry. Gates open at 10:00 am. We are hearing that the weather is supposed to be great tomorrow! Thank you!
