Balloons will take to the skies over Bristol this summer and the nightglow will take place online, but there will be no event at Ashton Court.
In order to adhere to the governmental guidelines around social distancing, the 2020 edition of Bristol International Balloon Fiesta cannot take place as normal.
BRISTOL FIESTA FLYPAST
Instead there will be the inaugural Fiesta Flypast, which will see iconic balloons flying over the city on one morning to be selected between 1-14 August.
We are inviting Bristolians to watch the balloons from the safety of their own doorsteps and gardens. Social distancing means we absolutely cannot gather in parks or Bristol’s open spaces or invite our audiences to see the balloons take off or land, to protect our pilots and the public.
The location of the events will remain private in order to adhere to government guidelines and Bristol audiences are urged to stay away from public spaces and protect the city from incurring any surge in Covid-19 as a result of the event.
Anyone who has already purchased car parking for the event please go to the ticketing page for full details.
The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta will return to Ashton Court on Thursday 12 – Sunday 15 August 2021.
