Dansville’s “Festival of Balloons” announces an ending after 41 years


Michael T. Baldwin Repors:

With a sad heart, The Dansville Festival of Balloons, LTD announces there will not be a scheduled 2023 Dansville Balloon Festival. The volunteer, not for profit organization has served the community and the area with 41 years of family entertainment centered on the natural beauty and history of hot air balloons. Since 2001 Dansville Festival of Balloons has donated to area organizations $225,241 and has been the center of thousands of priceless memories.

Due to continued decline of volunteer staffing and the financial environment we feel this is a necessary decision. We appreciate the volunteer assistance given to us over the years and the support of community, businesses and organizations.
