CM Events is proud to be the sole entertainment provider for the Tigard Festival of Balloons since 2007.
Established in 1983, the Tigard Festival of Balloons is one of Oregon’s largest family oriented festivals. Every year, more than 15,000 spectators arrive at Tigard's beautiful Cook Park early each morning to experience the amazing sight of 20+ hot air balloons launching into the morning sky! Crowds spend the afternoon shopping at the craft vendor booths, daring the rides at the Funtastic carnival, rooting for their teams in the youth soccer tournament, and enjoying live music on the Frontier main stage and entertainment for all ages throughout the day. Of course it wouldn't be the Festival of Balloons without the ever impressive NW Natural night glow on Friday and Saturday nights (illuminated hot air balloons), the Rogue Ales beer tent, Safety Safari presented by Radio Disney on Saturday, Twilight Run (new this year) on Saturday night, and Landmark Ford Festival of Cars on Sunday. It’s the fun-filled Festival of Balloons in Tigard and it happens June 20-22, 2014! The hot air balloons are definitely the featured attraction of the festival, but ... it’s MORE than just balloons!
The Festival of Balloons is a non-profit organization raising funds for many non-profit groups in Tigard while providing a premier family event for the entire community. Groups benefiting from Festival funds include: Tigard High School Boosters, Tigard Breakfast Rotary, Tigard Lunch Rotary, American Cancer Society/Relay for Life Tigard-Tualatin, Tigard High School Band and Auxiliary Parent Organization, Tigard High School Grad Night Committee, Southside Soccer, and many local schools.
