September 22-26, 2021
The Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival has grown into a highly anticipated fall event for High River and communities extending between Calgary and Southern Alberta.
While every year holds quirks and challenges to be addressed, 2020 presented us with a new suite of circumstances to consider. As we continue to plan for the 2021 Balloon Festival, we do so knowing there may be uncertain times ahead on the road back to hosting our full Festival offerings.
Know that the safety of our pilots, vendors, volunteers, and visitors is a top priority. Throughout the year we continually monitor the ongoing developments of COVID-19 including the recommendations and health orders made by Alberta Health Services to use as our guidelines. This becomes increasingly relevant as the time draws nearer to launch.
Given the unprecedented times and how quickly events can change, we will continue to plan with cautious optimism and the five-day Festival of flights and competition will go ahead.
Continue supporting one another and look to the skies for balloons of inspiration. Be kind, be safe and stay healthy.
