Get ready for what could arguably be the biggest week in Canowindra’s event and tourism history.
The internationally recognised and iconic hot air ballooning festival is once again taking place from 2 – 10 April, 2022 with some exciting inclusions, guaranteed to bring the crowds.
The much-loved community event, including the Street Parade and The Cabonne Community Glow, will be held on 9th April, 2022, and with thanks to the NSW Government’s Regional Events Acceleration Fund, this year will also see an extra night of entertainment and a new signature event.
Enliven Music Festival, will be held on 2nd April, 2022 and is bringing two of Australia’s top rated award winning artists, Jon Stevens, with the INXS and Noiseworks Collection and Eskimo Joe, sharing the stage with Country Rock up and comer, James Johnston, along with The Robbie Mortimer Band and Clancy Pye. Phat Brass, a fresh funk-pop style of brass band, rounds up the line-up for the much anticipated event.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the Canowindra International Balloon Challenge is building on the success of its 2021 event to host an expanded festival in 2022.
“Supporting big ticket events like this in regional NSW is what brings our economy into gear and back up to speed, and I can’t wait to see the benefits this festival will bring for communities not only in the Central West but right across the region.”
