Despite encouraging signs of the pandemic coming under control as vaccinations increase, the timing of large outdoor events remains in doubt.  To ensure a safe and successful festival, we are rescheduling to the weekend of September 3 - 5.


“After receiving the latest guidance from the State, we feel it is in the best interest, health and safety of the community, our volunteers and sponsors and all who have come to enjoy this event, that we reschedule the Quechee Hot Air Balloon Craft and Music Festival until September due to the COVID-19 virus.

A number of balloonists, entertainers and vendors have committed to participating at the September date.
