This week long festival in windy August celebrates the simple joy of kite flying in as many different ways as possible. Festival goers can attend workshops to improve their kite building skills, competitions for both kids and grown ups, multiple kite demonstrations or dances, demonstrations of the latest in kiting technology and see the sky littered with the biggest, smallest, weirdest and wackiest kites you can imagine.

International guests and competitors attend and people dress in kite themed outfits, have kite auctions and night flys. Organisers even promise displays of the best indoor kites.
