Our Mission: To provide fundraising opportunities for local non-profit organizations while celebrating the Tigard community.
Welcome to the event that celebrates community! The Tigard Festival of Balloons along with the City of Tigard welcome you to beautiful Cook Park. The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the Festival, but… it’s MORE than balloons! The Festival is a place for families and friends to gather, play, and relax. Join us in the pre-dawn hours (5:45am-6:15am) as approximately 12 hot air balloons launch into the morning sky (weather and pilot permitting). Spend the afternoon shopping at the craft and vendor booths, eating great food from local food vendors, and enjoying thrilling Funtastic carnival rides and games. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Festival of Balloons without the ever-impressive Night Glow (weather permitting), the Rogue Ales Beer Garden (wine and canned cocktails too), Live Entertainment on the Main Stage presented by Krista Britton-Hillshire Realty Group|EXP, Festival of Cars presented by Landmark Ford, Kid’s Zone, and a whole lot more!
