Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

About

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta will return to Ashton Court Estate from 8-11th August 2019.

Europe's biggest hot air balloon event

The spectacular free event will once again feature over 100 hot air balloons taking off at dawn and dusk as well as the famous Night Glows, when the balloons light up the sky in time to music.

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe's largest annual meeting of hot air balloons, attracting over 130 hot air balloons from across the globe. It's a sight that can only be seen in Bristol.

Alongside the fantastic sight of hot air balloons filling the skies, visitors can also expect a large number of trade stands, fairground rides and entertainment.

When and where?

Held over four days at Ashton Court Estate, the event is completely free with charges made for parking on the event site.
