Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 40 year celebration

The summer of 2018 will see the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta celebrate 40 years in the running.


The fiesta which takes place at Ashton Court Estate from Thursday 9th August to Sunday 12th August, sees over 100 hot air balloons take to the skies of Bristol. One of the city’s most famous attractions, it draws crowds in the hundreds of thousands.


The free event features the renowned Night Glows, where the balloons light up the sky in time to music. A colourful, fun event for all ages to enjoy, there are fairground rides, food and drink stalls and more!


Next year will mark an even more spectacular show, with special plans to make the fiesta better than ever before - keep an eye out for details to follow in the New Year.
