2015 Event

Proceeds from the 2015 QC Balloon Festival are used to support the River Bend Foodbank Backpack Program.

The Backpack Program strives to ensure that children don't go hungry over the weekend when there are no school meals for them to rely upon. The program serves approximately 2,100 children in the Quad Cities area.


Every Friday during the entire school year children participating in the Backpack Program receive free, nutritious food which they can take home in their backpacks and easily prepare at home.

Hot Air Balloon Pilots from around the Midwest will come to the Quad Cities for a spectacular event.
