Balloons & Tunes Roundup

Calling all Hot Air Balloon enthusiasts! Save the date for the 7th annual Balloons and Tunes Roundup February 12,13,14, 2020.

This year we are expecting 40+ Hot Air Balloon Pilots and 12 Bands over a beautiful Southern Utah weekend. We are hoping for perfect weather so our pilots can launch all three mornings!


Hot Air Balloon Launches will take place at the former Coral Cliffs Golf Course in Kanab each morning at 7:30am (weather permitting). Starting Friday afternoon join us on Main Street for a one-of-a-kind vendor fair and listen to our first few bands battle it out for the winning title of this years’ Battle of the Bands!

Saturday morning will start us off with another Balloon Launch (weather permitting), a vendor fair throughout the day and into the evening, and to end the day join us on Center Street for a Balloon Glow at 7pm followed by a Lantern Festival as the top 3 winning bands play into the night!

Don’t forget, there will be one last Balloon Launch on Sunday morning (weather permitting), so be sure to stay all weekend!


For more information, a full list of events and things to do over the long weekend once this amazing event is over, scroll to the bottom of the page.


Worried about the possibility of “Bad Weather”? No need to worry, in the case of “Bad Weather” the event will still go on without a hitch! Each morning balloon launch at the former Coral Cliffs Golf Course will start with a Pilot Weather Report from our Balloonmeister Bryan Hill, as he delivers the news if it is safe to fly. Balloons flying are never guaranteed at an event like this. But there is so much more to do if there is “Bad Weather”. Stay for the Battle of the Bands, vendors and more! If it is too windy or raining/snowing there will be no lantern launch on Saturday night, but there will be a candle stick show from our balloon pilots on Center Street the same night (pictured below). Stay the whole weekend for tons of Balloons and Tunes fun! You won’t be disappointed.


***How do we know if Balloons are flying? How do I know if there will be a Balloon Glow? Are Lanterns going to Launch? How do I know?!?***
