The Cape Fear Kite Festival

Cape Fear Kite Festival was organized as a “fun fly” without competitions or rules (other than safety!) to unofficially wrap up the kite-flying year. It is attended by serious kite flyers who enjoy showing their sky art to anyone who appreciates it.

While weather and wind dependent, SOMETHING will fly, we assure you! Hundreds of spectators of all ages and all walks of life cover the beach and many (we hope) will get hooked on the fun and beauty of a kite string in your hand and color against the clouds. We hope to have tee-shirts and kites for sale.

Come join us!


To foster the fun of flying kites and encourage participation to “kids of all ages”!


Will have both short and long-sleeved tee shirts and several types of EZ flying kites for sale


Fort Fisher State Recreation Area, Kure Beach 10-4 wind/weather permitting.
