ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Officials say tickets for the 2023 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta will go on sale this Friday morning.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday. At that time, you’ll be able to purchase tickets for general admission and park and ride.

General admission tickets are $15 per session for attendees ages 12 and older. Those 12 and under are free.

Park and ride tickets are also available for the pickup sites at Coronado Center, Hoffmantown Church, Cottonwood Mall or Intel.

Hospitality tickets, including for the Gondola Club and Chasers’ Club, plus camping options, including glamping, will also be available Friday morning.

Balloon Fiesta officials have announced a new opportunity this year: Camp 505. Branded tent accommodations will be provided and set up within walking distance of the Balloon Fiesta – and guests can keep the equipment!

“You get the two-person tent, the two sleeping bags, two sleeping pads, a large saddle blanket and a camp light,” said Tom Garrity with the International Balloon Fiesta. 

There will be 30 tents set up at a time. Guests will be required to book a three-day minimum.

Garrity says he thinks tickets will go fast.

“We know that with our balloons and pilots we have a proven commodity, people love to experience the balloons, and so Balloon Fiesta just likes to be able to provide different options for our guests,” said Garrity. 

He says the demand this year could guide what they do for fiestas to come.
