Join us for the most anticipated and colorful weekends of the summer. The 34th Annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo and the 41st Annual Art in the Park have become a staple of Steamboat in the Summertime. On Saturday, start your day at Bald Eagle Lake for a spectacular early-morning affair as you watch over 40 hot air ballons rise softly from the mist and drift over the Yampa Valley. Afterwards make your way over to West Lincoln Park for Steamboat's biggest arts and crafts festival. Art in the Park takes place on Saturday from 9-5 P.M. and on Sunday from 9-4 P.M. Mark your calendars because this weekend is an absolute favorite for the entire family!
Approximately 9/10 of a mile south of Walton Creek Road on Highway 40. There is NO PUBLIC PARKING at the event. *FREE TRANSPORTATION IS PROVIDED FROM THE MEADOWS PARKING LOT. There will be vendors selling souvenirs, coffee and breakfast items on the launch field so plan to come on down and check out the balloons inflating.
*Parking is FREE for the Saturday and Sunday morning. Park at the Meadows parking lot on Pine Grove Road. Transportation from the Meadows Lot to the event is also FREE.
Due to the event's convenient location on the edge of town, we encourage spectators walk, ride their bikes or take the shuttle from the hotel or lodge.
