Sumner Fest at The City by the Lake is Sumner County's premier hot air balloon festival. Nestled on the shoreline of Old Hickory Lake, Sanders Ferry Park is the idyllic backdrop for a celebration filled with food, fun, and non-stop entertainment. In just its second year, Sumner Fest has established itself as a must-do event in Sumner County.

Hot air balloons will color the sky and provide breath-taking aerial views of the surroundings.

Our entertainment stage will echo sounds across the lake and our lively Kid Zone will keep your little ones joy-filled until the sun goes down. And with dozens of merchant vendors showcasing their stuff and food vendors galore tempting your taste buds, we're sure you'll find something you've been craving. 

Looking for more fun throughout the year? Check out The Taste of Hendersonville in the fall!
