The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning is the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America, with more than 100 participating balloons. It holds the dual distinction of being a recipient of The New Jersey Governor's Award for Best Special Event, as well as the American Bus Association's designation as a Top 100 Festival in North America.

Held annually at Solberg Airport in Readington, the festival truly has something for everyone. Weather permitting, mass ascensions take place at 6:30 p.m. on all three days, plus 6:30 am on Saturday and Sunday. In between, check out concerts, non-stop family entertainment, hundreds of crafters and vendors, great food, fireworks, magic shows, a balloon glow, and much more. 

Hours are Friday, 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
