Alcovets Balloon Festival

After over a 20-year absence, ALCOVETS, in conjunction with Maverick Radio 95.1, is excited to announce the return of the balloon festival to Alamance County. The festival is being held at Cedarock Park, located 4242 R Dean Coleman Road, Burlington NC 27215, Friday through Sunday, September 9-11, 2022. This year’s festival will have balloon rides, a car show, a bike show, a 5K race, a kid zone, food trucks and craft vendors, and entertainment every night. There will be over 20 hot air balloons participating in this inaugural return of the festival. Additionally, on September 11th, there will be a ceremony to remember the events of 9-11.
