Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival 2022
For five magical days each summer — usually over Labor Day weekend — Boise skies fill with fanciful balloons during the Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival.
Hosted annually at Ann Morrison Park, the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic brings together locals and tourists alike who enjoy being surrounded by endless colorful balloons, and inspiring music.
The Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival is recognized as one of Boise’s final summer events, as the season beings to change and fall quickly approaches.
All launches are weather-permitting, however they typically take place starting at 7:15 a.m. and last until as late as 9 a.m. You can frequently see the hot air balloons soaring over downtown Boise, with the occasional balloon falling on historic landmarks, including building rooftops, right in the middle of Broadway avenue, and even the front lawn at our Capitol building!
With free tethered rides on select days, a chance to meet aeronauts each morning and one-of-a-kind night spectaculars, the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is truly an event you need to experience!
The Night Glow Event
- The main event is Friday’s Night Glow performance. Starting at 6 p.m., the pilots will put on a nighttime light show for all ages.
The 153-acre Ann Morrison Park is at 1000 S. Americana Blvd. There’s also an entrance off of West Royal Boulevard. The event also brings out vendors aplenty to the park, as well as plenty of food trucks offering delicious dishes. Live music acts will perform each evening.
