Balloons Over Rockbridge LLC is a 501(c)3 non-profit community group created to bring the balloons back to Rockbridge County for the enjoyment of the community and also to help raise funds and awareness for local charities and organizations through our annual July Hot Air Balloon Festival. The event will be a major fundraiser for one selected local charity each year.
Our Balloons Over Rockbridge Festival is held at the Oak Hill Cross Country Course at the Virginia Horse Center across the road from the main coliseum.
The 2018 festival beneficiary was Hoofbeats Therapeutic Riding Center located at the Virginia Horse Center. Check out their great program for individuals of all ages with all types of challenges!
The 2017 Balloons Over Rockbridge Festival was held July 3-5, 2017 and funds raised benefited the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Rockbridge.
