Sunrise Balloon Launches

The sunrise launches are going to be just as the name says, at sunrise, and if you do not want to miss them you will have to wake up a bit early and either watch the skies or come join and witness the launching of over 35 balloons!

Tethered Flights

While you are enjoying the performances and munching on snacks from the food & beverage area and your kids are having fun, you will have a chance to witness a Hot Air Balloon professionally tied and secured to the ground while it will be floating just above you.

Just to make sure you do not forget you are in a Hot Air Balloon festival after all!


As the night will set over Doha and the festival, enjoy a unique sighting of Balloons stacked next to each other while the pilots assure they are glowing in the dark in perfect rhythm accompanied by the festival’s musical events from the main stage, creating a lovely atmosphere and an experience like no other.


There is always something to watch for at the festival and this year a variety of performers, music bands, DJ, singers, are set to wow audiences at the 10-day event.

An extensive lineup of singers, music bands/groups, dancers, magic show, DJ, Violinist, mascots, jugglers and others has been set up to provide entertainment and enhance the overall festival experience for visitors.


In addition to being fascinated by the striking display of Hot Air Balloons, the young ones will have more to look forward to. A special arena has been designated for all kinds of different games that young ones and adults can enjoy during their visit to the festival.
