QUEENSBURY — The Adirondack Balloon Festival will return for its 48th year, with a brand-new format. 

“This will not be the same-old, same-old Adirondack Balloon Festival you know from years past,” says Mark Donahue, President of the organization’s Board of Directors, in a statement. “Due to COVID, we had to totally reinvent the festival this year. We are excited to bring back the joy and wonder of the mass ascensions, while keeping safe and still having fun.”

The 48th annual Adirondack Balloon Festival takes place Thursday to Sunday, Sept. 23 to 26. The event is 100% free for the community. Festival Merchandise, one of the event’s biggest fundraisers, will be for sale at select events, with a smaller selection than in previous years. 

Due to ever-changing policies from multiple agencies, the official schedule has been delayed but the dates, Sept. 23-26 have not changed and all upcoming launches/events will be from Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport in Queensbury.
