What is a Balloon Fiesta Session? 

Balloon Fiesta Sessions are the balloon flying events or balloon glows that occur at Balloon Fiesta Park during Balloon Fiesta. There are 14 Balloon Fiesta Sessions, nine morning sessions and five evening sessions. 

Canceled Balloon Fiesta Session

Occasionally the weather prohibits the launch or inflation of balloons but most often when there are poor weather conditions a session will be delayed. Museum Dining Events will stay open at these times, and your tickets are still valid, as the meal and other services will still be offered.


What is a Museum Dining Event? 

A Museum Dining Event is the ticketed viewing and dining event held at the Balloon Museum while overlooking the neighboring Balloon Fiesta Sessions, The Museum Dining Events are  presented by the Balloon Museum Foundation. The Museum Dining Events are held simultaneously as the Balloon Fiesta Sessions. Museum Dining Events Tickets are good for one session. 

Canceled Museum Dining Event 

While the weather may occasionally prohibit a ballooning session from taking place, it is rare that Museum Dining Events at the Balloon Museum will be closed entirely. The Museum Dining Event is primarily indoors allowing it to occur rain or shine. If the Balloon Fiesta Park or the Balloon Museum area is deemed unsafe by weather or world event and by Safety Officials, or the area has been damaged by weather and management determines that it is not hospitable for service, Museum Dining Events may be canceled.  


If your Museum Dining Event is canceled, the following options are available:

  • Transfer of tickets to the next available session. Museum Dining Events are often sold out, but if there are available tickets, we can transfer you to another viewing event.
  • Refund. If you are unable to attend another Museum Dining Events session and if due to extreme weather or world events and access to the Balloon Museum is not possible as determined by AIBF or City of Albuquerque, your tickets may be refunded. 


Please notify us no later than Oct. 31st and your refund will be processed as soon as possible.
