Each year the Balloon Aloft Hunter Valley Fiesta takes to the skies over the Hunter Valley over the October long weekend in an amazing display of colour and excitement! Each day will see around thirty hot air balloons from all around the country launch together at sunrise and float majestically over the Hunter Valley wine country. Come join in the excitement as a passenger or follow along from the ground.
Spectators are welcome to come along and view the Balloon Aloft Fiesta launch each morning. There is no cost to be a spectator, but you will require your own vehicle to travel out to the morning launch site. Full details for spectators will be provided closer to the 2020 Fiesta.
The best way to view the hot air balloon festival is definitely as passengers on board one of the balloons that will take to the skies at sunrise each morning. You can book your space on one of our fiesta flights for the experience of a life time; the excitement begins just before dawn as around thirty hot air balloons are inflated in the launch field - make sure to have your camera ready, it's quite the spectacle - then take off and drifting over the Hunter Valley vineyards for an hour in the company of a fleet of hot air balloons. Celebrations continue after the flight back at Peterson House Winery with live music, a gourmet breakfast and a champagne tasting to wrap up an exciting and fun-filled morning.
