The Kite Festival, first held in 1981, was included in the "Top 50 Ontario Festivals" list for four years in a row. Along with kite workshops, demonstrations and activities, we will be joined by kite experts from renowned Kite Clubs. Members of these clubs wow the audiences with their spectacular demonstrations with their high-flying colourful kites.
Don't miss this award-winning day of fun, colour and amazement!

Thousands of events are held every year in Ontario but only a select few are named to the 'Top 100 Ontario Festivals' list. For four consecutive years from 2003 to 2006, the event made the "Top 50 Ontario Festivals" list. The recognition program has been renamed and in 2008, Thunder Bay's Kite Festival was included in this prestigious listing published by Festivals & Events Ontario, the professional association for the festivals and events industry in Ontario. The Kite Festival has once again been named to the Top 100 in 2015.
