Early Registration now available!

Early Registration is now open for the FAVIA 225 / 2018 BFA Convention. Join us as we celebrate the 225th anniversary of the First Air Voyage In America. Sign up now at a reduced rate and be a part of a unique gathering of balloonists from across the country and around the world at a premier Philadelphia, Pennsylvania waterfront location.

To make it easier for you to register, we have included the option to sign up additional family members at a later date. So if you’re not sure how many balloonists from your household will be joining you, you can still sign up for your primary member discount now and add family later. Just remember their family discount rate ends when early registration closes October 31, 2017.

Another option you will find in the registration process is attendance at our Grand Ball Gala on Saturday evening. While we hope you will enhance your experience at FAVIA 225 by joining world renowned balloonists for dinner and dancing, you will have the ability to participate in the 2018 BFA Convention with or without including the Grand Ball Gala.
