Take Flight at Autumn Aloft

Every year, the breathtaking mountains and scenery of Park City become a backdrop for over 20 hot air balloons that take flight in a stunning portrait of aviation. The Autumn Aloft is a Park City tradition that will be taking place September 18-19, 2021. 

The day begins before the sun rises, as each balloonist carefully inflates their chosen craft on the ground. From uniquely decorated mosaics of color to animals and characters like dragons, owls and jack-o-lanterns, each of the hot air balloons are unique and distinguishable. And once the clock hits 8 AM, it’s time for them to take flight. 

After the Morning Launch, the rest of Park City is your playground—head into town for brunch and a day of sightseeing before heading back to Historic Main Street for the evening candlestick event. 

The Autumn Aloft will take place on the North 40 Fields and is FREE for all spectators.
