Celebration of Hope

The Celebration of H.O.P.E. Balloon Festival at Hiwassee College returns this September—bigger and better than ever! Be prepared for a wealth of children’s activities, inflatables, food and fun. This year’s event features double the excitement, as we’ve packed two days full of activities and some of the finest balloonists from across the nation. Multiple bands will provide live music throughout the two-day event as you watch 25 different balloons take to the skies.

As always, all proceeds raised by the Balloon Festival will go toward supporting the Hiwassee H.O.P.E. program, developed as a joint effort between The Bingham Group and Hiwassee College. The goal of this program is to ensure former foster children have a chance at higher education by offering them H.O.P.E.—Home. Opportunity. Possibility. Education.

Admission for the Balloon Festival will be $5 each day for adults with free admission for children. Children’s activities will require a $5 wristband. Don’t miss out on this amazing festival and a chance to help a truly worthy cause!
