about the Event and hot air balloons
Welcome to the event that celebrates the community of Tigard! The 2018 Festival of Balloons in Tigard will be held June 22nd - 24th, 2018. The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the Festival, but ... it’s MORE than balloons! The Festival is a place for families and friends to gather, play and relax. Join us in the pre-dawn hours as approximately 20 hot air balloons launch into the morning sky (weather permitting). Spend the afternoon shopping at the craft and vendor booths, eating great food from local food vendors, and enjoying thrilling Funtastic carnival rides and games. Don’t miss the Festival of Cars presented by Landmark Ford Lincoln on Sunday. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Festival of Balloons without the ever impressive Night Glow presented by Walmart on Friday and Saturday nights (weather permitting); the Rogue Beer Garden, live music on the Main Stage presented by Grocery Outlet- King City; 6v6 soccer tournament, Twilight 5K Run/Walk on Saturday night, and a whole lot more!
The Festival of Balloons is a non-profit organization raising funds for many non-profit groups in Tigard while providing a premier family event for the entire community. Groups benefiting from Festival funds include: Tigard Breakfast Rotary, Tigard Lunch Rotary, Foundation for Tigard-Tualatin School, THS Boosters, American Cancer Society Relay for Life Tigard-Tualatin, THS Band and Auxiliary Parent Association, Mountain Wave Search & Rescue, Tigard’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Southside Soccer, and more.
