©2019 by Wairarapa Balloon Festival.

The Wairarapa Balloon Festival features many free events and loads of family fun throughout the Wairarapa.


You'll be able to see pilots take off on early morning flights at the Mass Ascensions in Greytown, Carterton and Masterton, the ‘Burns’ in Carterton and Greytown, and meet the pilots’ at Te Kairanga Vineyard following the Meander over Martinborough flight. 


Don't miss the popular Night Show, 2020 will  deliver a bit of a different programme from previous years - there will still be the popular Glow where tethered hot air balloons glow to choreographed music (weather dependent!); as well as a fabulous array of food from a variety of food trucks, plus a range of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

The next Wairarapa Balloon Festival will be held at Easter Weekend - 9th to 13th April 2020.

We have yet to finalise the programme for 2020 ... as soon as we have details we will share them on our website and facebook page!
