Utah is home to some of the best balloon festivals in the West.

Panguitch Balloon Festival

Beginning in January, The Bluff International Balloon Festival brings 30-some pilots to the red rocks of south eastern Utah.

In June, balloon enthusiasts will find festivals at the Springville Art City Days, the Sevier County “Eyes to The Sky” festival in Salina, and the Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally.
Check with a nearby BBIU member inn Innkeeper for accommodations. The Red Brick Inn of Panguitch, and Salt Lake Metro area members are good choices.

July brings Provo’s America’s Freedom Festival International Competition.  Salt Lake/Wasatch Front inns are a short drive down I-80

August 8 & 9, 2014, the Sandy Hot Air Balloon Festival will take place.
The Castle Creek Inn is closest BBIU Member to the festival site.

August 15-17 The Ogden Valley Balloon Festival will be held, hosted by Nordic Valley. This invitation-only event will showcase 29 balloons.  The Valley House Inn in Huntsville is close.

September 19-21 brings back to Park City its much-loved Autumn Aloft. After some 20 years, the event will host 15 invited balloons.  BBIU members in Park City or in the greater Wasatch Back area are great choice for accommodations.

Always be sure to ask your innkeeper for their favorite viewing spots.

quilt-walkThe Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival is an annual event that commemorates a life-saving trek made by early Mormon settlers of the Panguitch area in the harsh winter of 1864. The 2013 event will be June 6-8.  Activities include a chocolate fest, Pioneer Home tours, theater presentations, and of course a quilt show and classes.   Find registration and visitor information at

Bed and Breakfast Inns of Utah member, Red Brick Inn, is located in town and close to all of the festival events.  Since the inn sells out quickly (only two rooms remain as of this post), contact soon.

When attending the Quiltwalk Festival, consider a stop at the beautiful Bryce Canyon National Park.  Lodging is available at nearby Buffalo Sage Inn in Tropic, just a few miles from the entrance to the Park.
