Hot Air Balloon Rodeo

Jul 8, 2017 - Jul 9, 2017

36th Annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo & 42nd Annual Art in the Park

The Hot Air Balloon Rodeo and Art in the Park events offer artistry and color both on canvases and in the air making this weekend a staple of Steamboat Springs, Colorado in the summertime.

Hot Air Balloon Rodeo

Get to the launch grounds early to see the balloons inflate and enjoy this wonderful photography opportunity.

The rodeo portion of the event consists of fun contests like dipping into Bald Eagle Lake and since balloon pilots can be pretty competitive, you’re guaranteed a good show.

Once the balloons are in the air, sip on coffee, grab breakfast from one of our local vendors, and let the kids burn off some energy in the kids zone as you watch more balloons dot the Yampa Valley sky.

Art in the Park

Just minutes away, another colorful scene awaits at Art in the Park, where arts and crafts, performances and an interactive children’s area will fill your day.

Balloon Glow

On Saturday, the fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down. Head back to the mountain area and take in the colors as the balloon glow lights up on Mt. Werner.

Spectators will have the opportunity to walk among the tethered balloons or take photos of this beautiful display from the numerous restaurant patios and hotel and condo balconies at the base of the mountain.
