2021 Canowindra International Balloon ChallengeCanowindra, Australia

24 April 2021 - 2 May 2021
The Canowindra International Balloon Challenge will be back in 2021. After a huge amount of community support in 2020 the organisers were devastated to have to cancel the event due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

And while the organising committee has had its hands full finishing up the loose ends from this year’s non-event, They have their eye firmly on the future, “We are ready and raring to go for 2021!” says Andrew Pull, President of the organising committee. “The 2021 Canowindra International Balloon Challenge will be a fantastic event and we are looking forward to welcoming back all of our sponsors, balloon teams, visitors and locals to this amazing event that’s perfect for the whole family and is mostly free.

Local business owner and Board member, Sarah Cummings says”
This is one of the bigger events for our region and it does bring a lot to the local businesses in and around Canowindra. We are a very proud and friendly town and it’s a great opportunity to showcase our many talents, amongst one of the most beautiful regional areas in NSW.”

Balloonists are also looking forward to coming back to Canowindra for next year’s event and initial responses indicate a large number of balloons for the event next year. “Next year is a really busy time for the balloonists with three other events happening in the 6 weeks before our event, so it’s great to see such an early commitment from the balloonists” says Board member Annette Thomas,

The busy balloonist calendar has also meant the organisers needed a slightly different time slot with the event now occurring after the First term school holidays. Andrew Pull says “ We want to be able to provide the best event we can and we need to push the dates back a week to accommodate existing ballooning events so we can get the maximum number of balloons at the event.”

“ There will be something for everybody at this years event and we encourage everyone to keep up to date by following our website and Facebook sites as we release more information over the coming months, but for now SAVE THE DATE and we look forward to seeing you all in Canowindra in April next year”

This year’s event will run from Saturday 24th April until Sunday 2nd May. With the famous Night glow to be held on the evening of Saturday the 1st May.
