Summer brings many great events to the Greater Binghamton area including our fairs, carnivals and a few major events – the annual Dick’s Sporting Goods Opening and the Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally.
In addition to colorful balloons and lots of vendors, Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally have attracted many great musical acts, and we’re proud to be a part of them. Last year the festival was held in October, and this year Spiedie Fest returns to Otsiningo Park in Binghamton, returning to the month of August where it is traditionally held.
The festival will take place from Friday 5th to 7th August. And today (June 2), the music numbers were announced. According to Spiedie Fest And Balloon Rally websitethe stage will include Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley on Friday, August 5 with the concert beginning at 6 p.m.
Then on Saturday, August 6, Foreigner’s Lou Gramm returns to the Spiedie Fest stage, performing at 6 p.m., and to wrap up the weekend, Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts will be on the Spiediefest stage on Sunday, August 7, at 3 p.m. .
In addition to these great shows, Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally 2022 will feature Squawk! from America’s Got Talent, the Puppies of Penzance, and meet and greet Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Peppa Pig.
Additionally, the 2022 Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally will feature lots of vendors, food, balloon launches throughout the weekend – weather permitting, of course, hot air balloon rides, a car show and vintage, classic and cool trucks, a volleyball tournament, Kelly LaBarre 5K Run/Walk and of course, the popular spiedie cooking contest.
