York Balloon Fiesta


Back again for another wonderful event, you won't want to miss this year's York Balloon Fiesta! Bringing with it a fun-filled weekend of live music, food, drink, children's entertainment, and, of course, a whole host of hot air balloons; what could be more spectacular?

This year's event will take place from Thursday, the 24th of August to Tuesday the 29th of August.

Once again, Virgin Balloon Flights will be providing passenger flights from the event, giving you the exciting chance to experience York from a birds-eye view.

Like all our flights, if you'd like a ride in one of our big red balloons, then this must be booked in advance.

If you already have a valid flight voucher, you can book online today and experience the York skies like never before!

If you do not have a flight voucher already, you can see our range of options before buying online here or speaking to our team on 01952 212750.
