In its 35th year, the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival continues to give Festival goers a fun and unique experience. Offering three days of exquisite local wine and top-name entertainment, the Main Stage brings concert goers to their feet! Bring a blanket or low backed chair to kick back and enjoy – or get close and up front with Silver Seating. The Wine Stage is live almost all day – each day – with local favorites and the up and coming.

Enjoy walking the Commercial Court, which is home to some 200 vendors, while the Food Court delivers your favorite Fair foods. Bring the kiddos along for extra fun at the Kids Faire!

Get here early to experience balloon lift off or rides! Gates open at 6am! Balloons fly above Lake Skinner (weather depending!) in the cool, early morning only. If you’re not an early riser, enjoy the evening Balloon Glow. Held both Friday and Saturday night under the stars, the Balloon Glow features tethered balloons dancing to live music.

And don’t forget the Wine and Beer Tastings each day from 11am to 9pm featuring favorites from wineries and breweries from both near and far.
