Festival of Balloons in Tigard


About the Festival                                          

It’s the fun-filled Festival of Balloons in Tigard Presented By Nicoli's Grill & Sports Bar, happening June 20-22, 2014! The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the festival, but ... it’s MORE than just balloons!

Get down to Cook Park EARLY (5:45 am - 6:15 am) each morning to experience the spectacular hot air balloons as they launch (weather permitting) and dot the morning sky. Spend the afternoon shopping at the craft and business vendor booths. Visit the kid's Fun Zone on Friday and Saturday afternoons for kids of all ages.  Nicoli's Grill & Sports Bar presents the 2nd annual eating contests for both adults and kids!  Don’t miss the Festival of Cars on Sunday presented by Landmark Ford. Of course, it wouldn’t be the festival of balloons without the ever impressive Night Glow Presented By Walmart on both Friday & Saturday nights; the Rogue Ales Beer Garden, live music on the main stage Presented By Grocery Outlet; Funtastic carnival fun center, clowns, cotton candy, and a whole lot more! It’s MORE than just balloons!
