The Hot Air Balloon Rodeo and Art in the Park offer artistry and color both on canvases and in the air making them a staple of Steamboat Springs, Colorado in the summertime.
Get to the launch grounds early to see the balloons inflate, and if you’re lucky you may even be asked to help crew. The rodeo portion 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 and eat a yummy crepe from one of the vendors as you watch more balloons dot the Yampa Valley sky.
Afterwards, head over to Art in the Park and visit with over one hundred-forty artist and culinary vendors showcasing a variety of work. Kick back, catch some live entertainment, and let the kiddos play in the interactive art area.
Mark your calendar for the most coloful and anticipated weekend of the summer!
For the ultimate experience, you are invited to join us on the launch field to watch the pilots prepare for take off! This is a great photography opportunity.
Approximately 9/10 of a mile south of Walton Creek Road on Highway 40. The physical address is: 35565 South Highway 40 and the property is better known as the Bald Eagle Lake.
There is no publie parking at the event. Free transportation is provided from the Meadows Parking lot on Pine Grove Road. Parking will also be free in the Meadows Parking lot.
