The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta has grown into one of the world's most photographed events. This is an experience not to be missed!
Set in New Mexico, a place diverse in culture and scenic beauty, the Fiesta is simply one of the most spectacular displays of sound and color you are ever to witness. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a world-renowned attraction and destination. For more than four decades, the first week in October brings the smell of roasting chiles and the beautiful, magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing silently through the crisp fall air.
From its modest beginnings in 1972 with 13 balloons launching from a shopping mall parking lot, the Balloon Fiesta has grown to multiple events launching year-round at the custom-designed, 365-acre Balloon Fiesta Park. This signature event, with over 600 balloons, is the largest ballooning event on earth, the most photographed event on earth, and the largest annual international event held in the United States.
This exciting journey also includes time in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, two culturally rich cities. Visit the unique shops and restaurants of Old Town Albuquerque. Wind through the stunning Turquoise Trail. Set out on a walking tour of Santa Fe that highlights the St. Francis Cathedral and the end of the Santa Fe Trail. Experience the Santa Fe School of Cooking.
♦ Embark on a bucket-list ride along the eclectic Route 66.
♦ Enjoy a docent-led tour of the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History.
♦ See the ever-changing art galleries at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.
