Summertime brings many great events to the Greater Binghamton area, including our fairs, carnivals, and a couple of major events - the annual Dick's Sporting Goods Open and the Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally.

In addition to the colorful balloons and many vendors, Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally have brought in a lot of great music acts, and we have been 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, moving back to August where it's traditionally been held.

The festival will be held from Friday, August 5th through the 7th. And today (June 2nd), the music acts have been announced. According to the Spiedie Fest And Balloon Rally website, the stage will include Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line on Friday, August 5th with the concert beginning at 6 pm.

Then on Saturday, August 6th, Lou Gramm of Foreigner returns to the Spiedie Fest stage, performing at 6 pm, and to round out the weekend, Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts will be on the Spiediefest stage Sunday, August 7th at 3 pm.

In addition to these great shows, the 2022 Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally will feature Squawk! from America's Got Talent, the Puppies of Penzance, and meet and greets with Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Peppa Pig.

Also, the 2022 Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally will feature plenty of vendors, food, balloon launches throughout the weekend - weather permitting, of course, hot air balloon tether rides, an antique, classic, cool car, and truck show, a volleyball tournament, Kelly LaBarre 5K Run/Walk and of course, the popular spiedie cooking contest.
