Balloon Fiesta travel advice
Visitors to this year's Balloon Fiesta are advised to travel by bus.
This weekend (September 27-29), the Balloon Fiesta returns to York's Knavesmire and is expected to attract thousands of visitors. Please note there will be road closures, one-way systems and no parking areas in place for the event.
Visitors are advised to use Askham Bar Park & Ride (service no. 3) to reach the event. The Park & Ride service also picks up opposite York Station for those arriving by train. Bus services which normally serve the South Bank area will be on diversion- please see our bus diversions page.
