    Name: Northwest Art and Air Festival
    Date: August 24, 2018 - August 26, 2018
    Event Description:
    The Northwest Art & Air Festival is a truly unique event. Early in the morning (weather permitting), Colorful Hot Air balloons launch from Timber-Linn Park for flights around the Albany area. On Friday night, balloonists ignite their burners and let the colors of their balloons shine at the gorgeous Night Glow event.

    Artists fill the grassy meadows of Timber-Linn Park with a wide variety of artwork; Food vendors, a Family Zone, Festival stage performances, car show, and a Beer and Wine garden are a few things to enjoy. Saturday night enjoy the concert in the amphitheater (with fireworks after the show) which in the past has brought acts like Joan Jett and Foreigner.

    Airplane pilots bring aircraft of all types, and kids can sign up for a free airplane ride through the Young Eagles program.
