Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally ‘22

Front St is open!

The construction on Front St. near exit 5 has finished and the roads are open. Onsite parking for the festival requires a pass that can be purchased at Mirabito gas stations. All others must use the parking at SUNY Broome and ride the free shuttle.

Over the past three decades the Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally has grown into a full three day event that attracts over 100,000 people from across the country, making it the third largest hot air balloon festival in the U.S.!

Occupying the entirety of Otsiningo Park in Binghamton, NY for an extended weekend, Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally features live music performances from Top 40 and local artists, two volleyball tournaments, cooking contests, a car show, arts & crafts, lots of delicious food, rides, and all kinds of vendors. There’s something for everyone!
