Casper Balloon Roundup

The Casper Balloon Roundup is Central Wyoming’s free hot-air ballooning event.  During three days in late July, you can look up into the Casper skies and see a rainbow of hot air balloons soaring.

Taking place in the heart of Wyoming, this event enchants both young and old with its vibrant colors and community entertainment.


Media credentials will be provided to qualified media (see qualifications). The credentials package includes an opportunity to sign up for hot air balloon rides during media day.
