The Michigan Challenge Balloonfest is a beloved community event that draws tens of thousands of people to Livingston County each year. The last full weekend in June pilots take flight and fill the skies with the brilliant colors of hot air balloons and compete in the challenge. In 2020, due to COVID-19 we were unable to host this event, but we’re excited to bring the challenge back in 2021 for a modified balloonfest event. The Michigan Challenge Balloonfest is scheduled June 25-27 and will feature a total of four launches throughout the weekend. These launches will take place in Howell.

Our arts festival is a palette of original art!
