Description:
Since 1993, the Southern Oregon Kite Festival (SOKF)
has been one of the premier kite festivals in the United States,
bringing some of the most well known kite fliers and kite makers
to perform and display their creations for locals and tourists alike…
This invitational event originated as the dream of kite hobbyist Steve O’Brien
and as the creation of Larry and Lynn Goodman, former owners of KCRE radio station
in Crescent City, California. In 2006, the kite festival became a non-profit
organization managed by a dedicated group of community volunteers.

Local vendors and artists set up their booths to provide great eats, treats,

Brookings also offers uncharacteristically good weather for the state,
scenic rivers and forests, as well as a wealth of outdoor activities for families and individuals alike.
