About Strathaven Balloon Festival

Our 2017 Strathaven Balloon Festival will take place - as always - during the final weekend of August.

During the afternoon and evening of Saturday and the afternoon of Sunday, you can enjoy our Family Fun Days - something for everyone!

There's no admission charge, you don't need a ticket, but we request that you buy a Souvenir Programme and pop some cash in our collecting buckets: that support ensures that our Festival can take place, every year - a true community event, but with an international reputation.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Strathaven Balloon Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
