2021 White Sands Balloon & Music Festival Canceled
The Board of Directors of the Alamogordo Center of Commerce has announced the cancelation of the White Sands Balloon & Music Festival, which was scheduled for September 10th, 11th, and 12th, 2021. Due to COVID restrictions recently implemented by the State of New Mexico, the Alamogordo Center of Commerce believed it impossible to hold a successful event and fully comply with the Governor?s COVID mandates.
The previous White Sands Balloon & Music Festival, held in 2019, was a single-day event and brought 21,000 people to this community and represented hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue to local businesses and our economy.
Tickets for this year?s event went on sale through Eventbrite on April 1st and had exceeded all expectations, with tickets being purchased from virtually every state in the Union and several countries. Although ticket sales clearly stated that those moneys were non-refundable, the Alamogordo Center of Commerce has instructed Eventbrite to immediately refund all ticket sales, as well as all vendor fees.
Our eternal thanks for the partnership with the City of Alamogordo that makes these events possible and the hundreds of volunteers, who have contributed thousands of hours in preparation for this event.
We will regroup and immediately begin preparations for the next White Sands Balloon and Music Fest that will be held on the third weekend in September 2022.
