Volunteer at the Museum During Balloon Fiesta

Volunteer With Us During The 2017 Balloon Fiesta

The Balloon Museum is directly adjacent to Balloon Fiesta Park, and we attract nearly 30,000 visitors during the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®.

The Balloon Museum is currently recruiting volunteers to support our operations during Fiesta, and we invite you to join our team. For nine days each October, Albuquerque skies are painted with hundreds of hot-air balloons during the world's largest ballooning event. Join us as a volunteer and have the best view of Fiesta!
