The Defiance Hot Air Balloon Festival presented by First Federal Bank and First Insurance Group and North Western Electric Cooperative will be held at the Defiance County Aiport. The Defiance County airport address is: 20399 Airport Rd Defiance, OH 43512



Parking at the airport is on grass fields and parking is at your own risk. If you are uncomfortable parking on the airport grounds you can be dropped off in the turn around off of Airport Rd with the same car admission fee of $10 per car. Defiance County EMA will be providing 2 lights in the fields after dark for more visibility.

There is main parking on the backside of the airport off of Evansport Rd. There are 2,000 spots available here. See the map below for a pin point of where you turn on Evansport Rd off of St Rt 15. Once you turn on Evansport Rd, go about a 1/4 mile and you will see parking on the left. You will walk through the airport grounds to the festival about a quarter mile.

The second parking option is off of Airport Rd. We only have 300 spots here for the public. This will also be the entrance for Handicapped parking or if you have special needs, Vendors and VIP parking permits.

Parking admission fee is $10 per car.
