Jackson Hot Air Jubilee

25+ hot air balloons will fill the skies over Jackson. Balloons launch Fri. evening, Sat. morning and evening and Sun. morning in Ella Sharp Park.

Balloon night glows Fri. and Sat. evening. Other activities include arts & craft show, car show, unique Kid’s Kingdom, antique tractor display, wild animal show, live entertainment, food and much more family fun.

In 1983 a group of Hot Air Balloon enthusiasts who lived in and around Jackson came up with the dream of a family friendly event for the Jackson Community. The Hot Air Jubilee was born. Since then the Jubilee has grown to an event that thousands of people attend every summer. 25-30 Balloons come in from around the country to participate in the friendly rivalry of the contests.


The mission of the Jackson Hot Air Jubilee is to contribute positively to the Jackson community by providing affordable, quality, family entertainment featuring the beauty, color and excitement of hot air balloons and other unique, one-of-a-kind attractions to the Jackson, Mid-Michigan and enthusiast communities. The Jackson Hot Air Jubilee accomplishes this by providing a financially sound event with the help of local volunteers and loyal sponsors.


The main focus of the Jubilee is obviously the Hot Air Balloons, however that’s not all there is to enjoy. When you and your family come to Ella Sharp Park during the event you will be greeted by some longtime Jubilee favorites such as Craft booths, the Kids Kingdom, Vendors, and an Auto Show. Being at the park this year offers a whole new set of opportunities for you to experience the Hurst Planetarium, Ella Sharp Museum, and the Mini Golf Course.
