I believe the National Balloon Rally in Statesville was held the first week in June.

the balloon festival is now held in June of each year, after complications with weather and finally 9-11. That was the last year it was held in September. I am sorry You missed it this year, it is a beautiful sight and I missed it dearly this year, especially the moonglow at night. The chamber of commerce and even any local hotel will be able to give you dates come closer to the next festival. If the Historic Vance Hotel is reopened by the next festival I highly suggest staying there for at least one night if possible. It is a beautiful building built 1918-1922 and it is a straight shot down roughly 5 miles to where the festival is held. Most years several flight crew members and chaser stay there as well for the convenience and friendly staff. By my understand the hotel wii be reopening late this year.

It is Oct. 28 -29.

The Carolina BalloonFest was known as the National Balloon Rally for its first 32 years and we continue our long and successful tradition under a new name this 33rd season.
