A Weekend of Everything that Flies


Over Two Decades of Flying High!

The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is the longest-running sports aviation event in Asia, gathering aviators and spectators from around the world for four days of non-stop flying action.

From hot air balloons to aerobatic exhibitions, formation flying to radio-controlled aircraft, paragliding, skydiving, and dozens of on-ground activities, visitors are always guaranteed to have an unforgettable weekend!

A Statement on the 2019 Fiesta

Because PIHABF has not received the commitment from our government partners on time, we were not able to organize the annual The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta (and The Weekend of Everything that Flies!) in Clark in February 2019.

Thanks to everyone’s abiding enthusiasm, the Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta (PIHABF) hosted 22 years of “A Weekend of Everything that Flies™” in Clark, Pampanga. Our latest fiesta was last February 8-11, 2018. It featured two women wing walkers for the first time in the country — a special treat to young and old alike.

PIHABF, however, may organize air shows outside of Clark in 2019. We will announce plans and developments on this website, www.philballoonfest.net, and social media channels (@pihabf -- see links above) and we welcome your continued enthusiastic participation.

Any other ballooning event not announced on this website/FB page is NOT organized by PIHABF, which bears an uncompromising track record of ensuring the safety of pilots, participants, and viewers.

Again, we thank you for your support all these years!
