Coming Up: Dothan Balloon Festival 2022

Dothan Balloon Festival 2022

Hot air balloons are returning to the Circle City! Now is the time to make your plans for the Dothan Balloon Festival 2022 before tickets go up, up and away!

Dothan Balloon Festival

The Dothan Balloon Festival 2022 is a three-day event the whole family will love. There will be colorful hot air balloons, tethered hot air balloon rides, vendors, bounce houses and more!

Mark your calendars for June 3rd-5th for this year’s hot air balloon festival—including the balloon glow after dark—from 5 to 9 p.m. each evening. Local food and retail vendors will also be on-site as well as games and activities for the kids.

Ticket information

Admission is charged per vehicle. Passes start at $20 plus fees and tax. Ticket upgrades are available to include a tethered ride or a more personalized experience.

For instance, you can upgrade your tickets to the Champagne Club for exclusive seating and access to climate-controlled restrooms. These tickets do include a complimentary tethered ride in one of the modern hot air balloons, weather permitting.

Another unique experience is the Pilot Club. This upgrade also includes a tethered balloon ride, private restroom access, Terrace seating, hot appetizers and a champagne toast upon your arrival.

Other important info

Remember this is a rain or shine event. To clarify, the food and retail vendors, bounce houses and other activities will go on as planned, rain or shine.

However, tethered hot air balloon rides—and even inflating the hot air balloons—depend on the right weather conditions. As always, safety is a top priority at any and all Balloon Glow Tour events.

Don’t forget to check in upon arrival if you purchased your balloon ride in advance, and remember to arrive before 7 p.m.
