The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta was founded on the weekend of the 7th-9th of September 1979. A small gathering of like-minded balloonists came together to celebrate the first-ever Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, at the popular ballooning location, Ashton Court.

Today, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta attracts over 100 Hot Air Balloons and 500,000 visitors over the four days of the event. The Fiesta has become as much of an icon for Bristol as Brunel, Wallace and Gromit or Concorde.
