Presidential Impact

We have received inquiries about whether the balloon festival might be affected if President Trump visits his Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster in late July.

In short, “No need to worry - the festival will go on as usual!”

Executives from the festival and other local agencies met with FAA representatives in mid-March. At that time, the FAA representatives pledged to "develop and execute a good security plan that will ensure the balloon festival will go on as planned."

So, join us on July 28, 29, 30 for the festival’s 35th anniversary celebration at Solberg Airport, including another great lineup of family-oriented fun, top-flight concerts and 5 scheduled mass ascensions of 100 spectacular hot air balloons throughout the weekend.
