2024 Michigan Challenge Balloonfest


The Howell Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the 39th Annual Michigan Challenge Balloonfest on June 28, 29, and 30th, a community event that has been enjoyed by families throughout the state for decades.

The Michigan Challenge Balloonfest will be at Howell High School, complete with carnival rides, family entertainment, food vendors, the open-air marketplace, and everything you have always enjoyed about Balloonfest. There may even be some new surprises!

We are in the process of building the list of events and will update here when it becomes available. Activities taking place in downtown Howell throughout the weekend can be found on Michiganchallange.com.  There is something for everyone to enjoy!

The Howell Area Chamber of Commerce extends a huge thank you to our sponsors, pilots, committee members, and community partners for their support, making the return of the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest possible.

We are always ready to welcome new sponsors for Balloonfest, if you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity, please contact the Chamber at 517-546-3920.
