ALCOVETS Balloon Festival 2023

ALCOVETS Ballon Festival

There’s an old saying that what goes up must come down. While it’s usually applied figuratively, that timeworn principle will have real-world implications this weekend when more than 20 hot-air balloons take to the skies of Alamance County during the 2nd ALCOVETS Hot Air Balloon Festival, September 8-10 at Cedarock 4242 R Dean Coleman Rd, Burlington, NC 27215.

The festival will feature a hot air balloon exhibition and, mass ascensions, live entertainment. We’re beyond excited to announce that Bucky Covington will be headlining the Balloon Festival Saturday, September 9!!! A kids’ zone, craft vendors, bike, and car show.

We look forward to seeing everyone and appreciate everyone supporting our local veterans.

– for tickets!
