Contracts can be customized to meet the specific needs of each unique sponsor. Since Major Sponsors offer tremendous support and services to the event, they receive the most exposure (such as banners around the launch field, full-page program ad, exclusive hosting areas and priority in our scheduling of media day flights). This a premium level sponsorship and is therefore on a first-come, first-serve basis to a limited number of sponsors.

Silver Sponsors receive excellent exposure throughout the weekend without the investment of a major sponsorship. These sponsors will be recognized as Silver Sponsors in our official program and announcements throughout the weekend. They receive a quarter page program ad, a 10 x 10 vending space on Balloon Boulevard and much more.

This is the specialty balloon sponsorship. It is for businesses and corporations that currently have a ballooning program for their special-shaped or logo balloon that promotes a specific product or company. A room for the pilot is included in this fee. Along with Major Sponsor balloons, logo balloons are given priority launch on media day.

Tailored for businesses who want to become involved with the event, Corporate Sponsorships give local companies an opportunity to get noticed and have fun at the same time. Corporate Sponsors receive one ride for two people each day during the event and are allowed to fly a banner on the envelope of the balloon. Additionally, many corporate sponsors use their rides as an employee incentive or customer appreciation.

This sponsorship is for those who want to have a great weekend of flying and socializing. Created specifically to allow families, friends and non-profit groups to enjoy a taste of the event, this level includes one ride for one person each day of the event.

We now offer One-Day sponsorships for those who have always wanted to take a hot-air balloon ride at the event. This level includes one ride for two people on one day of the event

*Sponsorship sales are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.*
