The Telluride Balloon Festival returns for its 40th year and it’s better than ever. It’s one of the most beautiful festivals to witness during the summer season, with hot air balloons gently floating above the gorgeous alpine ski town.
Witness the massive balloons take flight and join in on other festivities from Friday to Sunday, June 2nd to 4th, 2023 starting in the early morning at Telluride Town Park. The early hours usually provide the best conditions for hot air ballooning.
As long as weather conditions permit the ascension, viewers will get a chance to see dozens of hot air balloons gently making their way up in the sky. If you’re planning on attending the fest, be sure to bring your camera and plenty of layers because even though it’s almost summertime, those high-elevation mornings can be chilly!
