Frequently asked questions:
1. Is it too early to get a hotel room?
No – the Courtyard by Marriott at Carolina Beach has held a block of rooms at discounted rate – see message below.
2. When is it this year?
November 3rd and 4th (weather permitting)
3. Do I have to get tickets or pay to get in?
Nope – all free
4. Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are allowed on leash.
5. What about parking?
There is a big lot at Fort Fisher State Recreation Area and the rangers open other field areas when that fills up.
6. Can I bring a kite? Of course! Just be mindful of the bigger show kites and understand that we may not be able to bring those down if your line gets tangled.
7. Will there be tee shirts?
Yes, we are working with a new vendor this year and hope to have plenty in several colors. Please know that this is how we help defray the insurance/permits/fees/expenses we have to pay. Cape Fear Kite Festival is non-profit.
8. It’s on the beach, can we go swimming?
Weather permitting, have at it – but be advised there are no lifeguards this time of year so safety first.
9. What are the hours? 10-4 but if inclement weather may have to shut down earlier.
10. Is there food there?
There will be two food trucks and an ice cream vendor.
