One of our favorite events has traditionally been the Stowe Hot Air Balloon Festival. This annual celebration with over 30 years of history features breathtaking sights of hot air balloons going up over the Vermont mountains, as well as live entertainment, kids’ activities, great food, and beer.

While this event has been on pause since the pandemic, we’re hopeful that these glorious balloons can once again grace the Vermont skies soon.
