Upon careful consideration of the current COVID-19 restrictions, and the uncertainty of the immediate implications of lifting the social distancing/quarantine mandates in the near future, Bluff City Balloons will reschedule the Bluff City Balloon Jamboree from June 19-21 to August 21-23. The safety of the balloonists, our sponsors, our volunteers, the families participating in A Special Night For Special Kids, and the attendees from the greater Memphis Area is of utmost concern. Our decision is based on what we believe is in the best interest of our community.
