Sumner Fest in Hendersonville, also known as The City by the Lake as it borders picturesque Old Hickory Lake, is Sumner County’s premier hot air balloon festival! Sanders Ferry Park, also nestled on the shoreline of Old Hickory Lake, is the idyllic backdrop for a celebration filled with food, fun, and non-stop entertainment as hot air balloons color the sky and provide breath-taking aerial views of the surroundings. In just its second year, Sumner Fest has established itself as a must-do event in Sumner County. Bring lawn chairs/blankets to watch the hot air balloons take off and enjoy their beautiful glow! There will also be tethered hot air balloon rides available.
The entertainment stage will echo sounds across the lake and the lively Kid Zone will keep little ones joy-filled until the sun goes down. And with dozens of merchant vendors showcasing their goods and food vendors galore tempting your taste buds, everyone will love a night out at Sumner Fest!
Come out and enjoy all that The City by the Lake has to offer! We will have a free kids zone, live music, tethered hot air balloon rides and so much more. Bring a blanket and lawn chairs so you can stay to watch a hot air balloon glow and lift off! Sumner Fest starts at 4:00pm and ends at 9:00pm.
