Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta National Rally 2014

It is that time again - we have 200 spaces that are reserved for this sellout event - about 170 are taken, so email us at balloonfiestarally@Hotmail.com and we will send you the sign up info - we always fill, so don't wait. For more info see www.balloonfiesta.com/ .


This is THE International Balloon event - over 800,000 people attend each year, its the most photographed event in the world - written up in recent Trailer Life Magazine and photos seen in all kinds of WBCCI publications.


We are the only Airstream event that is parked right on the edge of the launch field - so you roll out of bed, miss the crowds and see about 500+ balloons take off at once + lots of other events going on all weekend.


This is one of the LARGEST Airstream gatherings in North America that attracts Airstreams from all over US and Canada

This sounds fun! I have some questions, and I was about to email you, but thought that there's probably others who would like some general info..

What are the dates? I saw that the event is from October 4-12. Is the rally the entire time?

Do the sites you book have hook ups?

Is this a dog-friendly event?

What's the cost?

Thanks very much. This could be our very first rally!!

Our event goes from Oct 4-7 cost is what fiesta charges for the site + $10 rally for for a total of $350 includes parking and all entry fees for two - we are dog friendly in the rally area - dogs are not allowed on the field ( balloons ) it's dry camping and we have a high percentage of first time rally attendees - with brand new and very old trailers - a great family event !!!

Last year's Ballon Festival was our first time at any rally with our first Airstream and this was a super event that is well planned from the Airstreamer's point of view. There are even commercial vendors that come around daily with fresh water or portable tank dumping capability if those services are needed (for some fee).

Make sure the propane tanks are full as it does cool off at night and bring layers of clothing.

Great FUN!

I sent an email last night, requesting a sign-up form. We're gonna go for it! Keeping an eye out in my email for the paperwork.

Not sure if we'll be driving from San Diego, or if we'll be stopping there on our way back from our cross-country trip.

Will be traveling with 1 husband, 2 dogs, 1 guitar, 1 fiddle, 1 uke. Will be looking for doggie friends while we're there, and musicians to jam with.

This is a fabulous rally and Ken does a wonderful job of organizing. We attended last year and with tons of pics we returned home very happy we had attended. I wish we could go again this year but we will have to wait.
This event should be on everyone's bucket list. This rally is not to be missed. I could go on forever about the rally but it is to be experienced, so just do it.
Thanks again Ken for a great time. We look forward to doing it again.

Two more, the Oregon Unit 90 current President and 1st Vice President. That makes five, but I think there is still one or two more.
