Call for Artists: WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest in Fuquay-Varina

In its third year, this colorful holiday weekend event consistently attracts over 80,000 people! A family friendly festival featuring hot air balloon competition flights, public tethered lifts, evening balloon “glows”, children’s rides, live stage entertainment, food trucks, beer garden, and military/veteran featured activities from May 25 - 28.

The Freedom Balloon Fest was recently named one of the ten “must-go” festivals by the News & Observer (Feb. 23, 2018). Artists will enjoy a clean, well-lit, safe and secure site, designated parking, and transportation to the festival grounds. Artists will also be featured on the festival website. Only 25 spaces are available in the Artisan Village. Huge crowds and low competition = SALES!!

Fuquay-Varina is one of the fastest growing towns in North Carolina. Reach this burgeoning new market at the Freedom Balloon Fest. For more details and registration information, please call the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce: 919-552- 4947 or visit: https://www.freedomballoonfest.com/2018-merchant-village.html. Don’t be dissuaded by the term “Merchant” — it is simply used by festival organizers to differentiate from non-sales display/sponsor booths.
