Dear Cave Creek Balloon Festival Attendees and Supporters:

We wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible that we will not be hosting the 2019 Cave Creek Balloon Festival for this Memorial Day Celebration. Just like other business and residents we are faced with changing times, a growing community and local changes or restrictions.

However, we are excited to let you know that we are only taking this year off so that we may properly plan a scaled-down event, which is more conducive for our unique and beautiful site. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page and website as we work to bring you the best possible event for our township, patrons, and supporters.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all in 2020!
