Bristol Balloon Fiesta

Bristol Balloon Fiesta

A whole day of entertainment. The Fiesta is jam-packed with activities for all the family. Head to the Brizzle Kicks area for children’s entertainment, bandstand for live music, and the Costa POD for a full programme of activities, talks and performances. Check out hundreds of traders and watch the arena entertainment through the day.

The hot air balloons inflate at 6pm for the afternoon ascent. The iconic Nightglow takes place on Thursday and Saturday nights, as soon as the balloon teams arrive back from the afternoon ascent. At 9pm, a collection of up to 25 balloons tether and light up in time to a soundtrack provided by the team at BBC Radio Bristol.
