Stratobowl Balloon Festival - Sept. 11th, 12th and 13th 2020

Sun., Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat.

The Stratobowl was first made famous in the 1930’s when high altitude balloons launched from the site, visited the stratosphere and made history. The site has long been acknowledged as an important part of aviation history. Now, once a year pilots and their balloons flock to the site in honor of those that came before us; to bring awareness to this beautiful historic site. Annually, the event hosts approximately 10 balloons during this weather permitting ‘sunrise only’ three day event.
