If you’ve purchased tickets for the 2020 Balloon Fiesta, you will receive an email by the end of the day on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 with instructions for rolling over your tickets to 2021, donating the value of your tickets, or requesting a refund. If you are unable to locate the refund email, please reference the FAQs below.
 

Ticketing Options

Rollover
If you plan to attend Balloon Fiesta in 2021, you can rollover your same tickets. If you purchased session-specific tickets such as Gondola Club, Chasers Club, Park & Ride, or Glamping, and are choosing to rollover your ticket, whatever session you purchased for 2020 will be rolled over for that same session in 2021. (For example, if you purchased a Gondola Club ticket for the Saturday morning session on October 3, 2020, and choose to rollover your ticket, you will receive a Gondola Club ticket for the Saturday morning session on October 2, 2021.)

Donate
Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a 501(c)(3) corporation. If you aren’t able to join us in 2021, you might consider donating the value of your tickets. By donating the value of your tickets back to Balloon Fiesta, you are helping to support the event during this unprecedented time. Thank you in advance for your generous donation.

Refund
If you are unable to attend Balloon Fiesta in 2021, refunds will be issued upon request. You may access the rollover/donate/refund form to make your selection until July 24, 2020. If no action is taken by that date, your order will automatically rollover to 2021.
