For the first time in it's history, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta now has on-site camping! Book your camping tickets online now for the 35th Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, held on 8th to 11th August 2013 at Ashton Court Estate

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is a world famous spectacle, originally designed as a meeting of balloonists and now one of the UK’s most iconic events.

Throughout the four days there will be a wide array of attractions on the site including model aircraft flying displays, inflation races, balloon tethering, appearances from the EXIT Parachute Display Team, a Spitfire Memorial Flight, an exhilarating display by the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team and the world’s premier aerobatic team - the legendary Royal Air Force Red Arrows.

During the days there will be fairground rides from the waltzers and child friendly rides to exhilarating ones. A delicious selection of food vendors will be there offering a wide variety of cuisines from around the world.. Those with a sweet tooth will love the amazingly decorated cupcake stands or pick ‘n’ mix tents or maybe visit the ice cream van for a classic ’99 in the sun.

During the fiesta over 150 hot air balloons will take off from Ashton Court Estate at 6am and 6pm and light up the skies on Thursday and Saturday night with the famous nightglows.
