Live Music On The  Main Stage Presented By Grocery Outlet - King City & Newberg

Friday June 26th (Coming Soon)  

Saturday June 27th (Coming Soon) 

There is no additional fee to see any of our great performer's.


On Friday and Saturday night when the carnival is in full swing, live bands are playing continuous music on the main stage, the Rogue Beer Garden is alive, and a variety of delicious food & beverage is being served under the setting sun, 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 pending).

It's a wonderful opportunity to be up close and personal with the balloons while they light up the night. The Night Glow is an exciting and spectacular event you’ll never forget!


The Festival of Balloons is ecstatic to welcome Rogue back for the 6th year at 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!
