Mission Statement

The mission of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is to conduct the world’s premier ballooning event while renewing friendships and promoting camaraderie among all participants and promoting the sport of ballooning, the City of Albuquerque and the State of New Mexico, nationally and internationally.


The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is looking for upbeat, enthusiastic, caring people to join our team of Navigators!

Balloon Fiesta is large and complex, and we depend on over 900 volunteers to help before, during and after. These volunteers, called "Navigators," are critical to every area of operations. They provide guest services, balloon coordination and safety, set-up and logistics, and more in over 40 different areas. This variety of needs allows just about any person, with any skills, talents or interests, to experience Balloon Fiesta from a new perspective.

Great event which needs lots of volunteers. Worked at setting up for an evening concert. Had great supervision and worked with an excellent team of volunteers.

The volunteering experience for the AIBF is by far the most amazing, exciting, fun, and wonderful event I have had the pleasure of volunteering at. The staff includes us volunteers as part of the whole team there at the fiesta. If you want to meet and work with a great group off people then make your way to this event. I have volunteered every year since 2000 and love every moment of it.
