How to Enjoy October - Balloon Fiesta Siesta

With the 49th Balloon Fiesta postponed to October 2-10, 2021, we have some items that may help you through the month of October 2020.

Balloon Fiesta - and now Siesta - merchandise is available through our online store. Our physical Gift Shop is NOT open for in-person browsing, but we do offer shipping and for those in the Albuquerque area, free “curb-side” pick-up for your online orders. 

If you still want to experience the wonderful balloons this fall, we have Balloon Fiesta Live! Siesta Edition. It will be available right here every day of Balloon Fiesta Week. 

Balloon Fiesta is also happy to share that, in conjunction with Yelp, we will be celebrating Yelp’s Taste of Balloon Fiesta. For more information and for participating concessionaires, please click here. 

Still planning to make the trip to New Mexico this year,  please check out the current Public Health restrictions here.

An Event Like No Other

For nine days in October, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta® creates an enchanted world of special-shaped balloon rodeos, twilight balloon glows, and vibrant balloon-filled skies. Brisk autumn mornings in the Rio Grande Valley create an otherworldly backdrop for the breathtaking majesty of our most popular event, Mass Ascension of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®.
