The Festival

The Ferrara Balloons Festival is the most important Hot Air Balloon Festival in Italy and one of the most prestigious in Europe.

In 2017 more than 90.000 visitors were able to enjoy the show offered by the "giants of the air" and the many activities planned at the Giorgio Bassani urban park in Ferrara.

Born fourteen years ago from an idea of the Ferrara's Province and Municipality, the event developed from a balloon's rally to a Festival that includes aeronautical, sport, cultural and entertainment 's events with laboratories, rides and  animations for the children, just a short distance from the historic center of Ferrara, jewel of the Renaissance and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The strategy pursued from the outset was to engage in important partnerships with private individuals and to engage local business fabric by widening its participation to all the cultural, charity and sport oganizations of the city. Thanks to these collaborations, the Festival has grown year by year while acquiring an international dimension and strong local identification.
