The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning, held from July 27-29, is the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America and is the premiere family entertainment attraction in New Jersey. It holds the dual distinction of being a recipient of The New Jersey Governor’s Award for Best Special Event, as well as being designated, for the 6th time, as a Top 100 Festival in North America by the American Bus Association.
Held annually at Solberg Airport in Readington, NJ, the festival truly has something for everyone! From twice daily mass ascensions of up to 100 special shape and sport hot air balloons, to headlining concerts, non-stop family entertainment, hundreds of crafters and vendors, great food, fireworks, a balloon glow, and more, the festival is jam-packed with stuff to do.
What better way to experience ballooning and The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning, than taking a balloon ride?
Join the other 100 balloons ascending into the sky and experience “Love at First Flight!” You can take a balloon ride (and go up, up and away) during any of our mass ascensions.
“For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
