For Immediate Release





READINGTON, NJ — It’s the biggest party of the summer, enjoy it in grand style!


The Volkswagen Blue Sky Club is the perfect setting for your own private party at the 32nd annual QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning in Association with PNC Bank, great for any special occasion such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, company picnics, or just a fun day out with friends and family.


Imagine the awe-inspiring feeling of more than 100 colorful balloons taking to the skies right in front of you as you watch from your private viewing area away from the crowds, relaxing in the sun or cooling off in the shade while the air is filled with the sounds of one of the Festival’s headlining concerts.


Volkswagen Blue Sky Club VIP tickets to this year’s Festival, July 25-26-27 at Solberg Airport in Readington, NJ, include admission into the Festival, reserved concert seating, priority viewing of the balloon ascensions in the Blue Sky Club tent adjacent to the flight line, catered food service in the Blue Sky Club tent, free reserved VIP parking (the closest on-site parking), and private restrooms with running water, vanity mirrors and air conditioning (always popular with female attendees).


The three-day festival is the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America and features the awe-inspiring spectacle of more than 100 hot air balloons taking off in mass ascensions twice each day over the scenic Hunterdon County countryside. Headlining concerts include ‘70s classic rock band America on Friday night, July 25; rock sensations 3 Doors Down on Saturday night, July 26; and the legendary Joan Jett & the Blackhearts on Sunday afternoon, July 27.


“In addition to offering affordable family entertainment to tens of thousands of people, we also offer our attendees the opportunity to enjoy the magic of ballooning in more luxurious settings,” said Festival Executive Producer Howard Freeman. “The Volkswagen Blue Sky Club offers the best views for watching the balloons take off along the flight light and the best seats in the house for our great concert lineup.”


Volkswagen enjoys a long tradition of dramatic innovation blending German engineering with American ingenuity and festival-goers can view the latest vehicles and learn about technology innovations at the Volkswagen Experience on the festival’s midway.


The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning’s Corporate Hospitality Village is another perfect place to host your next company outing. Guests receive a front row view of the balloon ascensions and VIP parking while enjoying a specially catered meal in a private setting and reserved concert seats. The festival will tailor hospitality packages to meet your group’s needs. Packages are offered for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening balloon ascensions in addition to Saturday and Sunday morning brunch.
