Red, blue, green and even checkered. The Stowe sky will be a frenzy of colors as the annual Stoweflake Hot Air Balloon Festival launches in town.

Voted a “Top Ten Event in Vermont,” you don’t want to miss it. Visitors can enjoy family-friendly activities and the romance of hot air balloons amid the Stowe landscape. Food, a beer and wine garden, live music, tethered rides, spa services and more will keep you entertained and relaxed throughout the weekend… not to mention the 25-plus balloons!

Morning launches are complimentary for all visitors and the evening festival is $10 for adults (ages 13 and up), located in the field behind Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. Stop anywhere in town and you’re sure to see one or more of these awe-inspiring giants as they soar through the sky.

The spectacular three-day event officially kicks off at 4 p.m. on Friday when gates open for a twilight launch; balloons will take off at approximately 6:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. from the Stoweflake on Saturday morning/evening and Sunday morning.
