Soar High at the Quechee Hot Air Balloon Festival!

The Quechee Hot Air Balloon, Craft & Music Festival is back again, and it promises to be an unforgettable experience for all visitors! Taking place from June 16-18, 2023, the festival will fill the skies over Quechee and the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire with hot air balloons, music, crafts, and more.

This festival is the longest running hot air balloon festival in New England, and with good reason. Visitors will be treated to the sight of up to 15+ hot air balloons, with five flights scheduled throughout the festival, as well as additional tethered rides during the day. It's a great opportunity to witness the colorful balloons taking off into the sky and to take in the stunning views of the surrounding area from high up in the air.

But that's not all - the festival also features continuous music and entertainment for all ages, and with over 50 craft artisans and commercial vendors, there will be no shortage of unique and handmade items to browse through.

Of course, no festival would be complete without food and drinks, and the Quechee Hot Air Balloon, Craft & Music Festival delivers in spades. There will be festival food available, including local healthy options, as well as a beer and wine garden to enjoy. And who knows, you might even find a few surprises on site!

Gates open on Friday at 3pm, while on Saturday and Sunday, visitors can arrive at 5:30am to catch the balloons taking off into the sky.
