Change of Plans

In lieu of Balloon Fest (don't worry, it will return next year) this event is meant to take its place offering many of the same family oriented activities and meant to feel like a giant backyard barbecue or family reunion.

In Their Own Words

"The event is Destination Oneonta’s Splash & Sizzle Bash and the event’s purpose is to bring the community together for a fun and memorable event that has a backyard BBQ feel with the entire community.
We have over 30 vendors - 6 of which are food vendors serving mainly BBQ inspired food options - water balloons and blasters, live entertainment & music, and bounce houses." - Victoria Smith, Destination Oneonta Director of Events.
