It is with heavy hearts that the Baraw Family would like to announce that its 34th Annual Stoweflake Balloon Festival is cancelled.
The past 33 years the Stoweflake Balloon Festival has brought people together from all over the country, brought smiles to so many faces and created countless everlasting memories. Our family and The Stoweflake Resort cannot in good conscience bring together thousands of people in a manner that is safe for all. This decision did not come easy as we know it will disappoint the many guests that have called and or emailed us expressing their desire to attend this year’s festival and we know how important the event is to our staff, vendors and pilots. The town of Stowe and its residents have been so supportive of us through the years and have gone out of their way to welcome our guests in there restaurants, shops and throughout town.
As a thank you and in the spirit of Stowe Strong the Stoweflake will go back to its roots and will be launching a handful of balloons for a fly over the town of Stowe. Please step outside the weekend of July 10th through 12th onto your lawns and patios and give us a wave as we fly over to say thanks. There will be no field activities and the gates will be closed but when you look up, we will be there.
