Your daily or weekend pass allows you access to the event grounds for the day(s) which you have purchased.Every adult attendee will be given a wristband upon arrival which must be worn while on the event grounds. This wristband will allow you to return to the event grounds on the same day. Feel free to come and go to the event throughout the day. Be mindful that although there are an amazing amount of available parking areas at The Villages Polo Club, once these are full, the lots will close.
Due to safety concerns, we do not permit walk-ins. Be aware that the Balloon Festival is an outdoor event with many portions taking place on the ground. These surfaces can be uneven and make it difficult for individuals to get around. The main covered pavilion provides easy access for wheel chairs from Fly me to the Food Alley, as well as great views of both fields.
We encourage you to bring your chairs. All balloon events are dependent on the weather. Security measures will be in effect including bag checks. No animals (with the exception of service animals), contraband, or outside food, including alcohol, will be permitted.
