Hot air balloons galore: Moo-La Fest ‘soaring’ back to Stephenville in June.

A popular four-day event that features hot air balloons is soaring back to Stephenville this summer.


Moo-La Fest will be held from Thursday, June 3, through Sunday, June 6, at Stephenville City Park.

The event pays tribute to Erath County’s dairy industry (hence the name) and includes live music, a “grub zone,” carnival, fun-run, and of course, an impressive display of hot air balloons.


A hot air balloon glow will take place from 8-9 p.m. Thursday and Friday. (Believe me when I say this is something you don’t want to miss.)


Then the equally spectacular hot air balloon fly-in will take place from 6-7 a.m. on Saturday.

This is the second time the city has hosted Moo-La Fest. The first took place in 2019, but was sidelined in 2020.


Pencil in these four days of fun and plan to bring your entire gang to this family-friendly event.
