About Us

Fantasy Balloon Flights Presents...

Welcome to the 2021 Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival. Join us for three days of activities for the whole family that include balloon tether rides, nighttime balloon glows, romantic dinners, live musical entertainment, gourmet food trucks, Kids' Zone, Art Show, outdoor market, family-friendly activities and so much more! We are pleased to partner with the City of Cathedral City, The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort and Spa, and Agua Caliente Casinos to expand the festival offerings for 2021. We are proud to give back to the community with proceeds from the ticketed events donated to SEAthletes Foundation to benefit the valley’s youth and to promote recreation at the Salton Sea. General admission to the balloon festival is free, however, tickets and/or passes are required to participate in certain activities and access VIP areas. Fantasy Balloon Flights is family-owned and operated and we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary operating hot air balloon events and services. We hope you will enjoy the 7th Annual Cathedral City Hot Air Balloon Festival!
