Kitty Hawk Kites and the Wright Brothers National Memorial sponsor the 34rd Annual Wright Kite Festival, held July 21-22 at the Wright Brothers National Memorial (mile post 8) in Kill Devil Hills, NC.
The Wright Kite Festival offers endless amounts of aviation fun. Held Saturday, 10am-4pm, and Sunday, 10am-4pm, the kite festival celebrates the history of aviation with two days of flight. Large animal shaped single line kites fly above the Wright Brothers Memorial throughout both days. Several other large kites of various shapes and sizes are also displayed. Many kites are provided and set up by Larger Than Life Kites, a common sponsor to kite festivals held by Kitty Hawk Kites.
In addition to large kite displays, members of Kitty Hawk Kites will offer free stunt and power kite lessons throughout Saturday and Sunday. Kite flyers from kite companies, like HQ Kites, and kite flying organizations also attend this festival and offer free flying lessons. Inside the pavilion, Kitty Hawk Kites offers children’s kite making, beginning at 11AM each day. Individuals and families are encouraged to join the festival by flying their own kites during the event.
The 34th Annual Wright Kite Festival is free and open to the public, but entrance to the memorial is $4 per adult. Children 16 years of age or younger receive free admission. The Wright Brothers Memorial Park grounds are open daily from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM and the Visitor Center is open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
