NIGHT GLOW PRESENTED BY WALMART

The Night Glow is an exciting and spectacular event you’ll never forget! On Friday and Saturday night some of the Festival’s featured hot air balloons will return to the field, be laid out on the ground, inflated, and their burners ignited, all in the midst of an excited crowd (weather permitting).

While the Night Glow is a spectacular sight, the Festival is more than balloons. Bring your chairs or blankets and relax under the stars as live bands play music on the main stage. Grab a beer or wine from the Rogue Beer Garden and enjoy a variety of delicious foods from our local vendors. And don’t forget the carnival is in full swing!

BEER GARDEN presented by Rogue ales

The Festival of Balloons is ecstatic to welcome Rogue Ales back to the Festival. The Festival is excited to have a "walk around" beer garden within the tent line. Grab a beverage and walk/shop the craft and commercial vendors, listen to live music, and watch the exciting Night Glow!

The Rogue Beer Garden is CASH ONLY.

Rogue Ales are made with the finest hops and barley malt, free range coastal water and Pacman top fermenting proprietary yeast. Preservatives, additives, chemicals: Never! Rogue does not pasteurize its products. Rogue Ales are bottled using an oxygen absorbing cap, brown glass for better shelf life, and plenty of malted barley and hops to provide stability.  (Courtesy of Rogue.com)
