NEWS FLASH! Bristol International Kite Festival 2015 update- The festival will be back for 2015 with new dates and a new venue... 22nd & 23rd August 2015 on Bristols Durdham Downs
Keep watching this website and our Facebook page for further updates.
Following a highly successful festival in 2013 the organising team has, after much consideration, decided to give this year a miss and instead to focus our efforts on planning for 2015 which will also mark Bristol’s year as European Green Capital City.
As many of you will know the festival is still run by a core team of hard working friends and volunteers and has become a major event to organise on top of family and full-time work commitments.
We will also not be running a Festival at Weston Beach this year for the same reason.
By running the Bristol event every two years in future, like some other major festivals, it gives us more time to plan ahead and manage these other commitments.
Kites will still feature in around Bristol this year and we are looking to participate in other events over the summer by offering activities such as kite-making workshops and displays. We are also proud to be support the Great Western Air Ambulance, as the nominated charity and The Lighthouse who help impoverished, destitute and disadvantaged children in Goa, India.
For a taster of next years festival check the arena programme and our International idols and UK stars pages for more info on guest flyers and their creations.
There will be major opportunities for sponsors, partners and traders/sampling to get involved.
And have a look at the Community Page for some fantastic photos - and please add yours on too, we would love to see them!
