Campsites available for 2018 Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival

TEMECULA – Each year, campsites at Lake Skinner during the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival sell out in less than an hour. Campers have the best seats in the house for the early morning hot air balloon launches as they awake to skies filled with colorful balloons. This year’s event is June 1-3, and reservations for campsites start 8 a.m., March 6. All campsite reservations are made online at .
Regular campsites start at $325 for three days and two nights and include two-weekend combo passes. Each combo pass provides admission all three days of the festival.
There are a few Exclusive Festival Experience Packages still available online. These packages include a full hook-up campsite, a meet-and-greet for two with the entertainer of their choice and two Cabana Club tickets for each day of the festival. Cabana Club is located at the main stage and provides guests with reserved seats in front of the stage, one catered meal, four complimentary beverages, special entrance and exit to concert seating and private VIP restrooms.
Lake Skinner Recreation Area is surrounded by the Shipley Preserve, a multispecies reserve. Whether flying aboard a hot air balloon or planted on terra firma, the festival’s park-like setting is chock full of natural beauty. The three-day event includes morning hot air balloon launches, evening balloon glows, wine tasting from up to 20 wineries, concerts on two different stages, food and wine pairing, cooking with beer and chef demonstrations.
“This is an event for all your senses – beautiful sites, tasty food, great wine and concerts. Photographers love the visuals of the dawn balloon ascensions over the lake,” Brian Keefer, festival CEO, said. “This makes camping during the event the extreme festival experience.”
