  8th Annual

Quincy Valley Balloon Festival & Pyrotechnics Experience

September 12-13, 2015. 

Presented by Quincy Valley Tourism

  In conjunction with Quincy's Farmer Consumer Awareness Day, or FCAD as we call it in Quincy, we raise our forks and solute those farmers that feed people all over the world right here.  We celebrate the 2nd Saturday in September not only the agriculture in our beautiful area but tourism as well.   The open skies and surrounding area of the Quincy Valley is a fantastic area for Hot Air Balloons.  We like to end this fun day with a Balloon Night Glow and a fireworks show that is like no other.  Without the support of our community and the generous sponsors this event would not be at all possible.  If you would like to be a sponsor or donate to the cost of the event you are welcome to do so!

There are no rides of any kind sold at this event and are weather permitting.

  1. Schedule of Events

Saturday 9/12 and Sunday 9/13 balloons launch at sunrise, approximately between 6:00 and 6:30 am.  The public is welcome to come out and watch as the balloons take flight.  The location will be just outside of Quincy at a location to be determined closer to the event.  We will keep this site updated as well as our Facebook page.  Don't forget to dress warm and bring your camera!

Saturday Evening

The location of the Nighglow and Fireworks will at Lauzier Park in Quincy.  Food Vendors and Beer/Wine Garden will be open at 6:00 pm.  There is no charge for admittance.  Bring your lawn chair, blanket, or something to sit on.  Make sure to dress for changing weather conditions.  The fireworks are very loud so we recommend bringing ear protection.  We do ask that you leave your pets at home. 

6:45- Thanking of Sponsors and National Anthem

7:00 pm- American Fool- A Tribute to the music of John Cougar Mellencamp will take the stage.  Maybe you have seen this band at Battle of the Bands at Swiftwaters Cellars?  You don't want to miss them!

Dusk-Hot Air Balloons will not lift off the ground but they will illuminate for a Nightglow.  As soon as the Balloons are taken down and all packed up the Pyrotechnics Experience by Northwest Pyrotechnics will begin.  Get ready to be amazed!
