One of Sydney's most popular cultural events goes online

For the first time in 42 years, Festival of the Winds is going online!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions around public gatherings, the famous kite-flying displays at Bondi Beach and live cultural events at Bondi Park have been replaced with an exciting FREE online offering.

Proudly presented by Waverley Council and the Australian Kite Flyers Society, this year's event will take place on​line on Sunday 13 September from 9 am to 5 pm.

Get the family together and visit, where you will be treated with a fabulous interactive program of on-demand videos, online galleries commemorating 42 years of Festival of the Winds, live music performances, interactive workshops and kite-making activit­­­ies from the comfort of your home!

Highlights include:

  • Let's Go Fly a Kite Pastel Drawing Workshop via ZOOM

  • Eishan Ensemble Livestream Performance

  • Steampunk Poster Workshop via ZOOM

  • Miriam Lieberman Livestream Performance

  • The Science of Flight Workshop via ZOOM

  • Victor Valdes Trio Livestream Performance

  • 42 Years of Posters Design Workshop via ZOOM

    Regarded as the largest kite-flying festival in Australia and a major event on Council's cultural calendar, don't miss this year's Festival of the Winds! While the winds may have changed in 2020, Sydney's popular annual event is still going ahead!
