Hot Air Balloons

Hot air balloons will be available in 2023! Hot air balloons are individual vendors of the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm and gracious enough to offer their services on our farm during the tulip festival.

These balloons are only able to operate weather permitting (no rain and winds less than 8 miles per hour) and while supplies last. We are unable to guarantee the balloons will be at our farm at any given date and time.

For any further questions or concerns, please reach out to the balloonists directly. Thank you.



Tethered Flights

Will be available for 2023 season!

Tethered Hot Air Balloons will be available Friday at 9am and Saturday and Sunday beginning at 8am. They will operate while the weather cooperates or until supplies run out. These balloonists offer more of a “ride” in which you are still connected to the ground via ropes. These rides are approximately five minutes, and you will not exceed 100 feet high. They are first come, first serve. Tulip fest admission is required.

No infants or children under 5 years, weight and height restrictions may apply.  

Sunrise Flights

Will be available for 2023 season!

Full Hot Air Balloon flights are offered at sunrise. They are pre-scheduled, and one must have a reservation through the balloonist directly. These flights lift off at sunrise and leave our farm property. They can range from 45 minutes to two hours depending on the weather. Once you land, you will return to our farm for a champagne toast.
