Saturday Evening, just after 9.00pm: Our Spectacular Evening Glow!

Throughout Saturday and Sunday, from 12.00pm, there will be all sorts of entertainment in the park, during our Family Fun Day: music, dancers, birds of prey to see up close, a fun fair, stalls galore, classic vehicles and much, much more. We will also (weather permitting) tether a Hot Air Balloon in the arena.
You will find a full list of events and times in the Souvenir Programme, available in local shops and in the park on the Festival days, price £5. If you buy one of our raffle tickets, you will have the chance to win a flight in a hot air balloon and many other prizes.

Every Programme sold helps us to make the Strathaven Balloon Festival possible each year. In addition, many spectators support the event by kind donation and this is very much appreciated. Programmes available in many local shops.
