The Villages Polo Club is located at 700 Buena Vista Drive, The Villages, FL. At the event site, cars will be directed to enter at the North/Players entrance and golf cars will enter at the south entrance. Please follow the signs and the instructions of our friendly parking staff as they direct you to the appropriate parking places.

SPECTATORS in vehicles will NOT be allowed to view the event without paying at the gate. All spectators must pay at the gate. Seating is not provided. Rental chairs and seating upgrades will be available day of the event for an additional fee. 

Your daily admission allows you access to the event grounds only for the day purchased. There is ample parking at The Villages Polo Club, but please be aware that once the lots are full, they will close.

Due to safety concerns, we do not permit walk-ins. The Balloon Festival is an outdoor event with many portions taking place on the ground so use caution as these surfaces can be uneven and cause difficulties for some. The main covered pavilion provides easy access for wheel chairs from Vendor Row, as well as great views of both fields.

We encourage you to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets as seating is not provided. All balloon events are dependent on the weather. Security measures will be in effect including bag checks. No animals (with exception of service animals), contraband, or outside food and drinks, including alcohol, will be permitted.
