Entry to the Fiesta is free but if you are driving to the event, you will need to book in advance to guarantee yourself a parking space on the day of your flight. We recommend you do this as soon as possible through the Bristol Balloon Fiesta website. Last entry to the car parks at 5pm.
You have a couple of different options – the Premium Car Park, which is closest to the Fiesta (and the one we recommend you book for) and the Main Car Park, which is a longer walk. Please make sure you arrive and park up in plenty of time for your flight and bring your car parking confirmation with you on the dayBook my parking.
There is also some disabled car parking available.
