Visiting the Fiesta

Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 6th - 9th August 2015

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’ in the morning at 6am, heading down to the mass ascents at 6pm, getting together to enjoy the spectacular Nightglows on Thursday and Saturday or planning a full weekend visit, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is a spectacle which must be experienced. 

Throughout the four days there will be a wide array of attractions on site including model aircraft flying displays, model balloon parades, inflation races, balloon tethering, appearances from the RAF Falcons parachute team. There is also a music stage running throughout the fiesta to keep you entertained, showcasing local talent from the South West. 

During the days there will be fairground rides, a delicious selection of food vendors and of course the essential ice cream vans for a classic ’99 in the sun.
