- Select your card value
The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe's largest meeting of hot air balloons attracting over 150 from across the globe to fill the sky. As well as the balloons there are fairground rides and all-round entertainment.
The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 2019 will attract teams from around the world and entertain thousands of happy visitors.
This truly is an amazing event that will thrill you all day long. In previous years the Fiesta featured 325 flights, world record landings and a giant daisy balloon from the USA. There were aerial displays from the 'Breitling Wingwalkers' and an RAF Typhoon, as well as a Spitfire & Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. With plenty of fairground rides and food stalls, you'll have a fabulous day out.
Arguably the most iconic part of the Fiesta is the Nightglow and Firework Finale when a collection of balloons tether and light up the night’s sky in time to a soundtrack of music. There is nothing quite like the sight of balloons igniting their flames as the music plays, creating a spectacle!
