The Great Falls Balloon Festival Board is greatly saddened to announce the cancelation of the 2021 Great Falls Balloon Festival. After much deliberation and consideration, we do not feel we can meet our mission goals, respect the current state mandates and reach our sponsorship goals to put on this event given the effects of Covid. Please understand there are multiple factors that have contributed to this unanimous decision to cancel. It is our mission to help create a platform for non-profits to raise funds and to bring tourism to Lewiston/Auburn. Our event can easily see up to 100,000 visitors over the three-day event, so even with recent changes in our mandates, it would be an extreme challenge to keep everyone safe. Our board has diligently been planning this festival in hopes of putting on our 28th festival!
We value the health of our participants, guests, volunteers, and our communities, and we will be back with a vengeance for 2022!
