New for 2019!
PLEASE: NO DOGS and NO DRONES allowed at this event.
Thank you for your cooperation.

at the Ogden Valley Balloon Festival!
Bridging the gap between the local community and virtual world!
This year the festival will team up with Michelle Robinson of the Bitcoin and Blockchain community to host the first experimental social event with an objective to educate the community on real life application of the up and rapidly coming digital currency technology. This event will feature a full day informative symposium on Friday to educate attendees on the apps currently available. Thereafter, Saturday will continue education throughout the day while featuring vendor booths for the festival attendees to interact with, and transact with these apps.
Workshops, Not Keynotes
New technology can be incredibly complicated to understand. We want our community to be educated. The workshops held here will need to be carefully crafted for the general public to understand.
Real World Tech Applications Booths
An artisan festival is nothing new. The alternative currency implementation is designed to be completely adaptable and useful during the event. Please showcase your booth to fulfill this model.
Vendors Accepting Pre-implemented Transaction Options
Vendors at this festival who agree to hop onboard this experimental event will undergo an educational on-boarding process prior to the event. These participating vendors will be on a preferred vendor list.
This year, Kala Wallet will be sponsoring vendors and attendees to accept KalaCoin cryptocurrency as payment during the event!
