Kite Festivals

 

Kite Festivals are enjoyed by millions of people every year all around the world. We even have a few of our own right here in Canada. What an incredible experience hanging out with all types of people, young and old, sharing a common passion. We may not be able to speak the same language at times but when it comes to kites and kite flying there are no barriers.

Check out the American Kitefliers Association for the latest updates of festivals around the world.
