Cape Town International Kite Festival 2017

The Cape Town International Kite Festival is Africa's biggest kite festival, attracting talented kite makers, kite fliers, and enthusiasts from around the continent. This year, the event will be celebrating its 23rd anniversary, promising to be bigger and better than ever before. Dust off your kites, practise your skills and head down to Zandvlei in Muizenberg from 28-29 October 2017.

The festival boasts family-fun activities, including kite-making, kite-flying, stunt kiting, Rokakkau kite battles, food stalls, kiddies’ rides, a full programme of entertainment and an eclectic craft market.

Each year, the festival attracts 20 000 visitors including some of the most well-known people in kiting in South Africa, who take the opportunity to show off their fantastical kites and talents.

Organised by non-profit Cape Mental Health, and ‘grande finale’ to October’s Mental Health Month, this year’s theme #RightToFly encourages people to realise that children and adults with mental health needs have the same human rights as everyone else and should be accepted, respected and included. In addition to kiters who hail all over South Africa, international kiters from Germany, China, Netherlands, England, and the USA will be showing off their incredible kites, in support of this great cause.
