The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is held annually during August in Bristol, England. Teams from the UK and other parts of the world bring their hot air balloons to the site and participate in mass ascents where as many as 100 balloons may launch at a time.

The event was first held in 1979 where it was dreamt up over a drink in a pub in Bristol. Just 27 hot air balloons took part in the first Fiesta at Ashton Court, which made 117 flights over the city. It is now one of the largest in Europe. It is now common to have crowds of over 100,000 on each of the four days of the festival. It takes place in a large country estate at Ashton Court. Mass launches are made twice a day, at 6am and 6pm, subject to weather conditions.

One popular attraction is the night glow, when balloons are inflated and glow to music after dark. These are held on the opening Thursday night at approx 9:30pm, followed by a spectacular fireworks display. There is another night glow at the same time followed by the fireworks on the Saturday night. Some people see these as the highlight of the fiesta.

The balloon makers, Cameron Balloons are near to the fiesta site, in Bedminster, and make many of the special shaped balloons, which have included Rupert the Bear, The Scottish Piper, Bertie Bassett, and the Tesco Trolley. Many shapes have also attended the fiesta from abroad, over the years a UFO and a beaver have travelled from the USA, a Kiwi Bird from New Zealand, and an upside down balloon from Holland.

The Fiesta costs nearly £500,000 to stage and is funded through a combination of commercial sponsorship, corporate hospitality, exhibitor stands and car park income. The show now combines ballooning with music concerts and a huge variety of entertainment for the family and is one of the UK’s biggest outdoor events.

In 2003 the fiesta celebrated it’s 25th anniversary.

Now in its 34th year in 2012, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is Europe’s largest annual Hot Air Balloon event and one of the UK’s top five outdoor events.

The Fiesta attracts 500,000 visitors during the show’s four days and it’s absolutely FREE to attend.

With mass Hot Air Balloon ascents at 6.00am and 6.00pm, the infamous Nightglows on both Thursday and Saturday evenings, arena and air displays, over 250 trade stands and caterers, and a variety of other entertainments, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is an event not to be missed.

Whether you want a fun packed day out for all the family, to meet up with friends for a drink whilst watching 150 balloons lift off, or simply to come and soak up the atmosphere at our village green – we can guarantee you a great time.
