Food, Fun, Entertainment

PLEASE NOTE: Launch and glow are subject to favorable weather conditions.


See a sky full of hot air balloons at the annual Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival. The sunrise balloon launches happen both mornings. The first wave launch around 7:00 am and the second wave around 7:30 am (wind and weather permitting) at Storm Mountain Park, 11400 South 1000 East, directions.

On Saturday evening, 8:00- 10:00 pm, the festivities move to the South Towne Promenade in front of Sandy City Hall, 10000 South 173 west with the balloon glow beginning around 8:30 pm. Tasty food choices will be available for purchase. Also enjoy an evening of entertainment.

Bring the whole family to see the balloons fly and at dusk on Saturday enjoy food and entertainment and the glow of the balloons.

Some pilots may need volunteers to help crew their hot air balloons. Come early, find a pilot that needs help and experience the thrill of helping crew a hot air balloon.
