Vendor Application for the Chester County Balloon Festival

The Chester County Balloon Festival (CCBF) has been a treasured event in the northeast region of the United States since 1998. Balloon enthusiasts, pilots, and vendors come from all over the country to take part in the festival. The festival grounds are beautiful, accessible, and ideal for balloon viewing and shopping.  

Vendors who sign up for the festival will not only be able to promote their business during the festival, but CCBF will promote your business before the event on our social media platforms (16k+ followers) and on our website.  

For 2023 we are only accepting 20 food vendors. We try to only have 1 vendor selling each type of food. We need our vendors to be prepared for the large crowds and hungry patrons so that no one runs out of food. We can’t underestimate our crowds because our festival goers come out in big numbers!

No Refunds  

  • If we cannot fly due to governmental airspace shutdown or inclement weather, we will NOT provide refunds. The festival is a rain or shine event. The balloons taking flight will happen if mother nature allows. We spend 1000s of hours and over a year planning for the event but if the weather does not cooperate the safety of our patrons, pilots, and crew is our top priority.   
  • In the unlikely event that the festival is CANCELED, we will take 50% of your deposit and carry it over to the next year's festival.
