For balloon fiesta week in old town

Please Note: Volunteer recruitment for working at the Balloon Museum during Fiesta 2017 has closed.

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

This summer, the Balloon Museum will be recruiting volunteers to support our operations during Fiesta 2018, 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!
