The Balloon Festival in Warren County, NJ is held annually at the Warren County Farmers' Fair. This year, due to Covid-19 and the Governor's restrictions, it was not possible to hold the Fair in its traditional fashion. For this year we are moving the event to a new location – Warren County Community College. The College has been a long time sponsor and over recent years started doing drone demonstrations to highlight their new Drone Program at the College. In the interest of doing their program justice we thought why not hold the event in close proximity to their Drone Port! A win-win.


Schedule - Friday, Saturday and Sunday

Balloon Launches will be in the mornings at 6:30 am, followed by Drone Demonstrations by Warren County Community College, and Tethered Rides, as weather allows.

Note: Hot air balloons typically fly right at sunrise, or two hours before sunset, when winds are calmest. The balloon launches last about 30-40 minutes.


Schedule - Wednesday through Sunday

Drone Demonstrations by Warren County Community College, will be followed by Balloon Launches in the evenings at 6:30 pm and Tethered Rides, as weather allows.

Note: Hot air balloons typically fly right at sunrise, or two hours before sunset, when winds are calmest. The balloon launches last about 30-40 minutes.
