From One Balloon to One Hundred

Now in its 37th year, the Bristol Balloon Fiesta is a four day event in August. For a true visual treat, this is not to be missed!

Back in the early 1960s, a group of Bristol gliding enthusiasts decided to take up to the new type of ballooning that had become popular in America. The result of their passion was the first modern hot-air balloon to grace the skies in Western Europe.

By the 1970s ballooning was more popular, and in 1979 the first Bristol Balloon Fiesta was held at Ashton Court. 27 beautiful balloons rose into the air and dazzled the many spectators, making a total of 117 individual flights.

Since then, the Bristol Balloon Fiesta has enjoyed successful turnouts year after year, and is now Europe's largest annual hot air ballooning event.

Businesses can sponsor balloons and have their logo on a hot air balloon, with staff often being encouraged to help get it airborne as well. In fact, The 100 Club was established to support this long held tradition.

The help of these sponsors, as well as the incredible sight of hundreds balloons, has helped the event to flourish and inspire many to try out the unique experience for ballooning themselves.

With over 100 unique hot air balloons attending the event nowadays, and with an audience of over 500,000 awed spectators, this is perhaps one of the most wonderful events in the UK at the moment.
