Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

About Albuquerque

See the mass ascension of balloons and more during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, the largest ballooning event in the world and one of New Mexico’s most dazzling spectacles. Experience the pre-dawn opening ceremonies and the unforgettable mass ascension of hundreds of hot-air balloons, where the sky transforms into a rainbow of colors. In the evening, see the dramatic Balloon Glow, when all the balloons fire up their burners and light up at the same time, and After-Glow Fireworks Show. There’s also time for sightseeing with visits to the International Balloon Museum and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, a fascinating museum and crafts market operated by New Mexico’s 19 pueblos. Experience a traditional lunch with a demonstration on corn grinding, and enjoy a guided trolley tour in Santa Fe, including the San Miguel Mission and Loretto Chapel’s “Miracle Stairway.” Without a doubt, this is the best way to experience the wonder of the spectacular Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta!
