Go Fly a Kite at Kitefest

Watch the kites take to the skies of Redcliffe


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a kite. Kite flyers from Sweden. New Zealand and Malaysia will gather in Redcliffe this August to launch their spectacular kites to the skies over the Bay for Redcliffe Kitefest 2017.

Be amazed by a sea of colour as the sensational kites from domestic and international kite flyers take over the skies in a range of colourful, attention grabbing design. Kites are an ancient form and are understood to have originated in China when a Chinese farmer tied a string to his hat to keep it from blowing away in a strong wind. Ancient kites were made from silk, paper and bamboo.

Kitefest is part of the Redcliffe Festival running from 26 August 10 September 2017. Redcliffe is located 28 kms from the CBD.

Kite Making Workshops
If this leaves you feeling inspired, get ready to get carried away and make your own kite at the kite making workshops. When finished, you can launch your creation in the public kite flying zone. The workshops cost $5 and will be operating from 10am 2pm near the entry gate and KiteFest art installation.

Entertainment for the kids
As well, Redcliffe KiteFest welcomes Paw Patrol and Trolls Live on stage to entertain the kids along with a Jumping Zone, Splatt Nation, rides and amusements, and Jet Ski Stunt Show. Please note that all demonstrations are subject to weather conditions and may be re-scheduled or cancelled due to safety requirements.
