November - August all facilities are available for rent. All facilities tend to book quickly and about a year in advance. 

Park Rental Details

There are a variety of requirements that come with renting the North Launch Field. Since the field is basically a blank canvas, special considerations need to be taken into account such as tenting, fencing and tables/ chairs. The staff in the events office will be happy to help guide you through the process to ensure your event is a success.

The steps to rent the North Launch Field include:

  1. Contacting the events office to discuss dates and obtain application (also available at top right of this page)
  2. Scheduling a meeting and walk through, if necessary
  3. Reviewing the application, filling out as much information as possible and returning to the events office
  4. The events office will review your application and invoice you for the non-refundable application fee (applied towards the overall rental total). This fee is due to officially confirm your date.
  5. A countersigned agreement will be returned to you 
  6. Final payment will be due no later than 30 days prior to your event. At this point the events office will schedule a pre-event meeting to discuss the final logistics of your event.

Rental applications must be received at least 45 days prior to your event.

Larger events may require additional review and approval by the special events permitting office. Staff can help guide you through this process. All permitting requests must be started no later than 60 days prior to your event. To start this process, you will need a counter-signed copy of the Balloon Fiesta Park rental application and to fill out the permit request here

You will also be required to obtain insurance for your event.
