    I represent the professors, and would like information on how to have this band considered for the All Ohio Balloon Fest in Marysville.

    the professors are led by Barry Hayden, former lead singer of Ohio’s legendary band, The Dantes. the professors are not a tribute act, but the real deal, playing the best non stop, high enery music of The Who, The Animals, The Kinks, The Byrds, The Stones, The Beatles and more. In addition the professors are self contained, professional, great musicians and easy to work with. Please check out our website to see and hear the professors in action.

    Our schedule last year included Scioto Downs, The Columbus Clippers, The Main Event in Bexley, Ohio, Dance Party 2013 at Villa Milano, Short North High Ball, several festivals, benefits, private parties and various popular Columbus venues.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
    Thank you. Marilyn Sweeney, for the professors, 614-436-8655

    I just moved to Ohio and am looking forward to the event. Where can I find the basic information: Do I need to purchase admission tickets? Are there passes for everyday of the event? How do I get on a mailing list for full information when it becomes available?

    1. Marie W

      Go to allohioballoonfest.com that will give you all the info you need.Tickets to the fest can be puchased at the gate. Jerrod Neimann concert tickets have to be purchased in advance at ticketfly.com We do not have a newsletter.

    Are there still non-food vendor booth spaces available? If so, what is the cost? I saw a cost for the food vendors, but not for the non-food vendors. I am a retired disbled veteran and have just started up a outdoor decorative light business, I make these lights and just wondered if this would be a good venue to showcase them at the Ballonfest, thanks Steve

      Steve,

      Please email me your info at mariew@marysvillejt.com. Please send a photo of what you make. The vendor fee is $700.00 for all 3 days. The event draws about 30,000 people in the 3 day time. I think you would do very well.

    I just found out about your event and am looking forward to attending. I was just interested in knowing about the vendors. Are they craft etc type vendors or are they more like home remodeling type sales people. Was just wondering what all was available to fill the day.
    Thank you.
    Looking forward to my first balloon fest.

      Hi Kathie! We have both types of vendors coming… there will be booths with information about windows, pools, etc. as well as a variety of novelty vendors. We also have about 20 food vendors this year. For a full listing of who all will be present, check out our “Vendors” page. We look forward to seeing you at the Fest!
