The International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the biggest gathering of balloons in Canada, is a major event for all the family. With an average of 350 000 visitors per year, the event’s popularity has risen steadily throughout the years and employs a strategy based on three essential elements: the enchantment of hot air balloon flights and night glows, free animation for the whole family, and major shows nightly. The many musical performances lined-up include Akon, Serena Ryder and Walk Off the Earth. There are close to 100 hot air balloons, including many special shapes, major shows, and a huge site that hosts an incredible variety of animation activities.

In 2019, from August 10 to 18, visitors will participate in this great magical and colorful festival!
