Visiting the Fiesta

Welcome to the 36th annual Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is a world famous spectacle, originally designed as a meeting of balloonists and now one of the UK’s most iconic events. 

Whether you will be joining us for ‘breakfast and balloons’, the spectacular Nightglow or planning a full weekend visit whilst camping in our official campsite, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta has something to offer everyone.

Throughout the four days there will be a wide array of attractions on the site including model aircraft flying displays, inflation races, balloon tethering, appearances from the EXIT Parachute Display Team, a Spitfire Memorial Flight, an exhilarating display by the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team and the world’s premier aerobatic team - the legendary Royal Air Force Red Arrows.

During the days there will be fairground rides from the waltzers and child friendly rides to exhilarating ones. A delicious selection of food vendors will be there offering a wide variety of cuisines from around the world.. Those with a sweet tooth will love the amazingly decorated cupcake stands or pick ‘n’ mix tents or maybe visit the ice cream van for a classic ’99 in the sun.
