The Montgolfiades de Saint-Émilion are back for another edition from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th October 2021!
The success of this event is growing, thanks to the spectacle offered by the grouped flight of 18 hot-air balloons, to the generally favourable weather in October, and to the activities for young and old that accompany the flights.
Would you like to be part of this incredible event by booking a flight? A few places are still available.
To reserve your seats, you should go to the Parc Guadet (in Saint-Emilion) from Thursday 14 October in the afternoon (precise time not communicated by the organiser). Important: health pass required to participate in the flights.
4 flight slots are open to the general public:
Please note: allow 3 hours for the whole event.
Hot air balloon take-off
The balloons' take-off places are decided 15 to 30 minutes before the beginning of the flights according to the weather (especially the wind direction).
These places cannot be communicated to you in advance and will be announced a few minutes before the departure on the Facebook page of the event. See here >
