About Strathaven Balloon Festival

Our 2019 Strathaven Balloon Festival will take place - as always - during the final weekend of August.

A weekend full of fun including funfair, live entertainment, stalls and of course Hot Air Balloons including our Saturday spectacular evening glow.

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.

The Strathaven Balloon Festival Committee is a non-profit voluntary organisation and works hard to raise money to cover the costs of the annual festival. We take pride in giving Strathaven this colourful spectacular each year. Our only regret is that we cannot control the weather!

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.
