Kirkcudbright Set To Blow The Cobwebs Away With Second Kite Festival

This weekend, 28th & 29th September 2019, see’s the second annual Kirkcudbright Kite Festival in the town. This popular event on the calendar is predominantly free and has a great range free entertainment for all the family.

Orgainsers have told DGWGO ” There will be the usual giant kite displays, interactive workshops and activities, fairground rides and food and drink. Bring your own kite or try some of ours.
There will be demonstrations throughout both days, displaying a range of huge kites, with sizes up to 16 metres – the size of a double decker bus! A world class display team, who travel the world creating spectacular kite displays, will fly the giant kites, with a range including giant bears, tigers, whale shark, blue whale and manta ray. Each bright colourful kite is so big, they are attached to a 4×4 to ensure they don’t fly away and each flies so high they can be seen for miles around.
In addition to these spectacular kites, there will be kite making workshops for children, . The workshops allow children to create their own kite that they can take home. There is also the opportunity to try and fly different kites, with expert guidance. Kids can see the fun they can have from flying a kite – a brilliant antidote to computer games and tv!
The event is located at the Solway Pitches, Gartshore Park, just opposite the Swimming Pool in Kirkcudbright, DG6 4AW. The event runs from 10am to 3pm, on both Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th September.
The displays, workshops and kite flying are all free! We would be grateful for any donations at the event to ensure that we can continue the kite festival for years to come. The event promises to be a great day out for all the family.”
