At A&A Balloon Rides, we love attending festivals to connect with local pilots and fly in different areas. Here are a list of festivals we have attended in the past and may attend next year!
Balloon Festivals We Attend
Brian Boland's Experimental Balloon Festival
This event usually takes place the third weekend in May at Post Mills Airport in Thetford, Vermont. Here pilots fly balloons that have been made by hand rather than by a manufacturer. This event does not take paying passengers.
Quechee Balloon Festival

With the support of local businesses, an army of volunteers and the cooperative efforts of the cities of Lewiston and Auburn, the festival has gained a national reputation as a first-class event and is a destination for many visitors to the state of Maine.
