We hope you find an event that starts, or continues, your journey into the wonderful world of kites.  You will be amazed at what modern kiteflying is all about - it is far from what most imagine it to be.
Do go to a kite event, join in, have some fun and meet other enthusiasts who will be only too happy to help.
Some of the events listed here are small local gatherings and kite club meets, others are large International festivals. Some are 'turn up and fly your kite' type of event with no trade stands or demonstrations, others may charge an admission fee to dazzle you with a programme of events.
Most are held all day, usually commencing around 10.00am - weather permitting of course!

I started in 2001 as I wanted to share this information with everyone. I do take great care in ensuring the accuracy of the information and the links and email addresses did work when added to the calendar. If you notice any inaccuracy, errors or broken links please email me, Julie White, and let me know.
May there be wind on your back,
a smile on your face,
and a kite in the sky.
