The QUAD CITIES BALLOON FESTIVAL would not be possible without the support of

our sponsors.


We appreciate their support and have new opportunities for sponsorship available for our 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 1,300 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.
