Adelaide International Kite Festival 2014 - 19,20,21 April 2014

The Adelaide International Kite Festival will be celebrating its 17th anniversary this Easter  April 19th, 20th and 21st.

This international and multicultural event brings kite flyers from around Australia and overseas to Semaphore Beach brightening the sky and hypnotising spectators with their twists and twirls.

The Festival is a free community event held annually, and in 2014 it will bring kite flyers from New Zealand around Australia, and  South Australia. The flyers will bring with them a huge array of colourful kites ranging from hand-made, to stunt and power kites, large and small and all very treasured.

Flying times for each of the three days will be from 11am to 5pm, weather permitting.

Programmed activities this year will include the always popular lolly drops, increased to hourly for all the families to enjoy as well as Rokkaku Kite Battles to take place each afternoon.

The Festival also has the pleasure of inviting a group of Afghan Kite Flyers based here in Adelaide to demonstrate and speak about the cultural importance of kite flying in the Afghani culture on Saturday 19th at 2pm. Hands-on activities for the public include kite-making workshops held on the foreshore in the carnival area, bring along your own kite to fly, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy a feast for the eyes with the colourful and always entertaining Adelaide International Kite Festival.
