Recognizing those who have gone above and beyond!


The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta has been successful for nearly 50 years due to the hard work and dedication of a lot of people. We try to recognize everyone who contributes on whatever level when they contribute. However, there are those who have gone above and beyond. To honor them, we have special recognition programs in place. 

They include:

Hall of Fame

Heritage Award

Wall of Fame

Please visit these pages to read about the very special people who have contributed to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and in some cases the entire sport of ballooning. 

To all of them we say...Thank You!
