Staging for this year's event will be at the Rail Runner station at Los Ranchos/ Journal center located at 101 El Pueblo Rd. NE, at 8:00 AM, MDT, October 3, 2021.
Restrooms are not available at the staging location. Officials will alert us when the field is open and ready for us. Although we anticipate this to be around 9:00 AM, the time is based on multiple factors and is ultimately out of our control.
Entrance to Balloon Fiesta Park via general admission is included for those individuals inside of your participating vehicle. However, once inside, there are no in-and-out privileges. Please note, all vehicles entering Balloon Fiesta Park with the Fiesta of Wheels caravan for entry are subject to search by officers and Canine units. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding. Note, the FoW caravan will be entering through the Crew entry on the North end of Balloon Fiesta Park. Although the roadways are fairly maintained, there are places that are underkept and/ or not paved. There are also large inclines and declines the caravan will encounter and alternative-entrance routes were not made available to the FoW entrance caravan. As such, please plan accordingly.
