Due to the unprecedented outbreak of the COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival (TVBWF) has been rescheduled to September 25-27. The TVBWF board and staff made this difficult decision based on the current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and the California Department of Public Health recommendations.

“While we remain hopeful that the drastic moves made by our state and local governments will curtail the outbreak, the health and safety of the community, Festival guests, participants, and partners is our number one priority,” Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival executive director Stacey Ellison said. “It is out of an abundance of caution that we are rescheduling the 2020 event to September. The Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival will return to its traditional dates for 2021.”

The event is held each year at Lake Skinner Recreation Area in the heart of Southern California Wine Country. The Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival was established in 1983 to promote the local community and its growing wine region. The event includes sunrise hot air balloon launches, evening balloon glows, concerts on two stages, and tastings of wine, craft beers, mead, and local distilled spirits.
