Thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor of the 24th annual Great Falls Balloon Festival.
In 1992, a group of business people, civic leaders and friends began discussing new ways to celebrate our community, while at the same time providing fundraising opportunities to local non-profits and civic groups. With the help of local businesses, an army of volunteers and the cooperative efforts of the cities of Lewiston and Auburn, the Great Falls Balloon Festival has become more than anyone could have imagined.
The festival now reaches well beyond the great community of Lewiston/Auburn—it enjoys a national reputation as a first-class event and is a destination for many visitors to the state of Maine.
The sight of dozens of hot air balloons in the skies over Lewiston/Auburn is a spectacular experience. With free admission, annual attendance above 100,000, financial impact in excess of $2,000,000 and hundreds of thousands of dollars raised by participating non-profit groups, it’s easy to see why our community eagerly anticipates the festival.
Like any business or event, cash flow is a most difficult task to manage. Support from local businesses enables continued growth and free attendance for festival visitors. If you are unable to make a cash donation, please consider a contribution of goods or services. In either case, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
