St. Patrick’s Balloon Fest & Glow

Light up your weekend starting on the afternoon of Friday, March 8th as balloons take to the air at Dublin Civitan Fairgrounds located at 2530 Hwy 257.

This year’s featured specialty balloons will be announced soon!

The fun at the fairgrounds takes off again on Saturday, March 9th with another Balloon Glow in the evening. Get fired up when live music from Bravis Runyon takes to the stage Saturday night. Dine on tasty treats from the onsite concession booth!

Up, Up, & Away!

Admission to the Balloon Fest & Glow is free.

Tethered rides may be available at the balloonists discretion during both days of the Glow beginning at around 5:00 PM.

Balloon rides will be available for purchase at the balloonists discretion for $250 beginning Friday afternoon. BALLOON RIDES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THE SPECIALTY BALLOONS. All rides (tethered or untethered) are first come, first served and may be cancelled due to weather.

Please Note: The St. Patrick’s Balloon Fest & Glow entirely depends on the weather. If the weather conditions are too windy or storms are forecast, the take off will be postponed or cancelled until conditions are acceptable. We love our balloonists. Their safety is our primary concern.
