New Smyrna Beach Kite Festival

Get ready for a high-flying weekend of colorful fun at the New Smyrna Beach Kite Festival! Located directly on the beach, just south of Flagler Avenue, this event is sure to provide real "fun-in-the-sun" for the whole family! There will be professional kite demonstrations; friendly competitions; and free lessons and tips for novices, including free kite kits and decorating stations for the kids! Adults and children are also encouraged to bring their own kites. Admission is free, but registration (on a walk-up basis, the day of the event) is required.

Kite Stop will be there with a tent to sell kites, and there will be a sectioned off area for doing kite demonstrations throughout the day.

Contact me directly ([masked]) if you would like to be more involved in the planning/organizing of this event.

    My crew got there at around 10am and traveled north up the beach a bit to find a good spot to fly after seeing that the event location was somewhat confined. Nobody wants a 6ft kites whizzing by their heads at 20mph. We flew the entire time and when we left around 2pm I was hoping to see some delta wings out flying in that event space, so I could stop and get some tips. Unfortunately, all I saw was single line kites, albeit beautiful, I'm more into trick flying. By then parking was dismal, so we continued on to the house.

    Really fun festival. People from all over the State of Florida showed up to support this festival, and the organizers gave approximately 450 kites out.

    This event is scheduled to start at Noon, but I would suggest people get there a bit earlier to make sure you get a good spot on the beach. The official event area is rather small, but I think if we get there early enough, we can claim enough space.
