About The Old West Balloon Fest


We invite you to join us for the 10th anniversary of the Old West Balloon Fest. A family fun weekend for everyone from the ages of 1 to 100. Celebrating a Decade of flying, fun, and DREAMS. Many remember the event from the 1980’s and 1990’s and dreamt of the event coming back to the area. The event was “re-inflated” in 2015 to the delight of the community. Our 10th anniversary will be a spectacular show of the greatest magnitude. Hot air balloons will fill the sky each morning for mass ascensions. Days filled with activities and balloon glows to light up the evening sky. Our grand finale will be a night glow and concert. You won’t want to miss the drone show with over 200 drones depicting iconic scenes from the Western Nebraska area we love. There is an abundance of entertainment included in your low admission price of $20 per carload. The pass is good for the entire weekend of events, the best bargain in the valley.
