At the 34th Annual Festival of Balloons in Tigard, the hot air balloons are the main attraction, but it's much more than just balloons - it's a celebration of community!

Every year, more than 15,000 spectators arrive at Tigard's beautiful Cook Park early each morning to experience the amazing sight of 20+ hot air balloons launching into the morning sky! Crowds spend the afternoon shopping at the craft vendor booths, daring the rides at the Funtastic carnival, rooting for their teams in the youth soccer tournament, and enjoying live music and entertainment for all ages.

Of course it wouldn't be the Festival of Balloons without the ever impressive night glow on Friday and Saturday nights (illuminated hot air balloons), the Rogue Ales Beer Garden, Twilight Run on Saturday night, and Landmark Ford Festival of Cars on Sunday.
