Summer Camps @ Tallahassee Museum
Jun 1 – Aug 7 all-day

We are so excited to bring a new approach to our 2020 summer camp program! Don’t worry, we’ll maintain our nature-based education method, which includes a healthy balance of indoor and outdoor time and implements hands-on immersive nature experiences. As a nature-based camp program, each week-long summer session will introduce concepts concerning our natural world today. As a camp team, students will work together to find solutions to some of the issues at hand. We have invited experts in the fields of water conservation, bee keeping, agriculture and farming, as well as in areas of tourism to share the work they do and how it all relates to the natural wonders of the Florida landscape. This year we’ll apply our hands-on immersive experiences, as well as the lessons learned from our guest speakers in the development of an end of week collaborative project for each week-long session of camp.

Artopia @ Donald L Tucker Civic Center
Jun 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Artopia is a charity art fundraising event that benefits Big Bend Cares. Some of the best local and regional artists donate their artwork for this event, which includes a few signed and numbered limited editions. With art and media including painting, sculpture, photography, arts and crafts, and more, Artopia has become a must-attend event, drawing hundreds of participants per year.

Artopia features both silent auctions, and a rousing live auction at the end of the evening. But you don’t need to be an art connoisseur to enjoy this lively event! As a matter of fact, there’s just about something for everyone—beautiful art at a reasonable price—in just about every form you can think of! Last year, Artopia featured more than 400 pieces of art! In addition to all of the artwork, local businesses and individuals donate gift certificates or other goodies that you can bid on.

Out of concern & respect to the Tallahassee community and our patrons, we are going to follow the suggestions of the World Health Organization and local government officials. We are postponing the Tallahassee Balloon Festival until July 17 & 18 2020. This will take place at the North Florida Fairgrounds. If you purchased “Non Refundable” tickets in advance they will be honored fully at the rescheduled Tallahassee Balloon Festival or any of our Hot Air Balloon events.

We want to thank the Leon County Special Olympics for their participation and we will continue to support them in July.

We pray for the Tallahassee community, and our great Nation and all those around the world. We hope that this virus is eradicated quickly. Thank you and God bless. *Please do not fire off comments on our page if you have questions please message us directly or email us at info@balloonshows.com
