Good news
The FMG will be back in 2021 for Labor Day weekend!

FMG takes the prize!

Good news! The Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival (FMG) has won the Vivats Socio-Economic Commitment Award. This award, presented by the Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables, recognizes the event with the most positive impact on the community in Quebec. The FMG was also nominated in the Responsible waste management category.

The FMG's sustainable practices were also recognized this year during the Vertuoses competition organized by Enviro Éduc-Action. This is a contest of environmental excellence whose objective is to reward and promote sustainable development initiatives in the Outaouais.

We would like to thank our 1500 volunteers for all their hard work. These awards are a testament to all that you do. We would also like to offer a sincere thank you to our partners in these green initiatives, namely the City of Gatineau, Enviro Éduc-Action, Recyc-Québec, Irokko, Ola Bamboo, the Gatineau Soccer Association and the Scouts de l'Outaouais, as well as to all of our suppliers and, of course, to you, the festivalgoers!
