The European Balloon Festival is an international ballooning competition taking place in a gorgeous natural landscape, only a few miles from the magnificent city of Barcelona. The first edition was held in 1997 and since then this spectacular festival has taken place every year during the first fortnight of July. There's over four days of displays, with fifty hot air balloons flying with their teams and over 30 thousand people in attendance. Join the large crowds so not to miss out on a show of colours, sport and intense competition among the planet’s best balloon flyers.
