Following last year’s successful event, Balloon Fiesta organizers instituted price increases to cover higher than anticipated costs connected to operating park and ride and providing an increased public safety presence. Due to the global economic swings related to COVID-19, the AIBF Board delayed any increase to general admission for the 49th event. 

If the 2020 Balloon Fiesta is cancelled in its entirety, tickets purchased for the 2020 event will be refunded, including any service fees associated with their purchase, or applied to the 2021 Balloon Fiesta at the purchaser’s option.

If you are purchasing print-at-home tickets, they will be e-mailed to you after your confirmation email is sent. Print your tickets and bring them with you. Be sure to check your spam folder so you don’t miss this important email. 

If you experience problems printing your tickets, be sure to bring the credit card used to make the purchase with you. 

All tickets are non-refundable. A convenience fee is added to all online ticket purchases. 

If you plan to drive to the park and park in the general admission parking lots, note that there is a $20 parking fee. Please have your cash ready as we do not accept credit or debit cards for parking fees.
