Balloon Fiesta is a weather dependent event and tickets are nonrefundable.
Safety of all of our Balloon Fiesta guests, including pilots and crews, will always come first regarding making decisions whether the balloons inflate. While October is generally ideal for ballooning in Albuquerque, less than ideal weather at Balloon Fiesta Park or in the vicinity, can sometimes prevent the balloons from inflating. If the decision to not allow the balloons to inflate is made, Balloon Fiesta will rain-check that session. You are still welcome to enjoy all of the amenities Balloon Fiesta has to offer for the the remainder of the session and your ticket will be re-activated in the form of a General Admission ticket, valid for any remaining session in the current year. The status of Balloon Fiesta sessions will be available on the Website and Official App.
