about us

This is the only music festival in Massachusetts that features hot air balloons and rides.

Located in Greenfield, Massachusetts, and presented by the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce,this annual celebration combines music on multiple stages, delicious local food, crafts from a range of artisans, a dance tent, a wide array of kids' activities, balloon illuminations and hot air balloon launches (weather permitting) for the Pioneer Valley's biggest outdoor event of the summer. This is the only music festival in Massachusetts that features hot air balloons and balloon rides. You gotta be there!

This incredible festival happens the third weekend of July on the campus of Greenfield Community College.

This is the premier Franklin County Music event of the year! We take the best national talent, the greatest local food and fine crafts, the most beautiful hot air balloons and put it smack dab on the grounds of Greenfield Community College and VOILA! You are happy!

Two stages of music, last year we introduced the dance tent as a fiesta for the feet. You liked it, we're keeping it in the lineup. Bring your dancing shoes!

We keep our ticket prices reasonable (with kids 12 and under FREE), reasonably-priced onsite parking (with free parking and shuttle bus service also available), our grounds clean (we are working toward zero trash!) and everyone safe (sorry, no pets or alcohol allowed).
