Imagine a crisp, cool, picture-perfect morning amidst the dramatic backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains when, suddenly, 15 colorful hot air balloons begin inflating simultaneously. An amazing sight!
The Ogden Valley Balloon and Artist Festival is scheduled for August 17, 19 and 19. The event will be held at Eden Park, the site of the first Valley Balloon Festival held in 1994. The festival offers affordable fun for the whole family. This year’s event will feature balloon launches, art booths, continuous live entertainment featuring an eclectic selection of music, family games, and a diverse group of local food vendors. The popular Balloon Glow will take place Friday and Saturday evenings, August 17 and August 18, at dusk. At approximately 8:45 p.m., hot air balloons will begin in
flating simultaneously; their intense flames roaring—a spectacular sight against the night sky.
What makes this balloon festival different from the others, is our philanthropic efforts. Please help support us as we help support others. The fundraiser breakfast for the Ogden Rescue Mission is back! Friday through Sunday, beginning at 7:00 a.m., a traditional breakfast will be served at Eden Park, with all proceeds from the breakfast benefiting the Ogden Rescue Mission.
Entrance to the festival is free. Nominal fees for family games and vendor food will be charged.
This event is made possible by generous donations from our sponsors Ogden Regional Medical, RAMP, Powder Mountain, Mountain Luxury, Remax, Powder Mountain Getaways, Basinview Lodging, Waypoint, Zions Bank and Legacy Sponsor Nordic Valley. All Events are Located at Eden Park.
