Our Mission: To provide fundraising opportunities for local non-profit organizations while celebrating the Tigard community. Welcome to the event that celebrates the community of Tigard! The Festival of Balloons in Tigard. The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the Festival, but... it’s MORE than balloons! The Festival is a place for families and friends to gather, play and relax. Join us in the pre-dawn hours as approximately 20 hot air balloons launch into the morning sky (weather and pilot permitting). Spend the afternoon shopping at the craft and vendor booths, eating great food from local food vendors, and enjoying thrilling Funtastic carnival rides and games. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Festival of Balloons without the ever impressive Night Glow (weather permitting), the Rogue Ales Beer Garden, Live Music on the Main Stage, Festival of Cars presented by Landmark Ford Lincoln, Kid’s Action Zone and a whole lot more! Check out the Schedule of Events for complete details.
