KITE-FESTIVAL smallNow in it’s second year, the Kenya Kite Festival is taking place on the 10th of February 2013 at Ngong Racecourse from 11am to 6pm.

Kiting is considered to be a high energy, family event that originated from China, one of the greatest kiting destinations. The kiting culture has spread across the world and attracts kite flyers and kite enthusiasts from every corner for a day of kites and family fun. Original handmade art kites, giant creature kites, kites trains, fighter kites, stunt kites and kite buggies fill the air over an open field.

The first Kenya Kite Festival was held in Kenya on August 2012. Adults and children alike flew kites, watched the kiting display from professional kiters and experienced Remote Control Airplanes swoop in the air.

The Kenya Kite Festival brings together families from all over East Africa to enjoy a unique event. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own kites to partake in some amateur kiting. Food and drinks will be available for sale on the day.

Our Vision is to is to have Kenya become internationally recognized as a kiting destination while promoting kiting with a difference.

For this event we shall be supporting Akili Dada:  This is an international award-winning leadership incubator nurturing a generation of young African women from underprivileged backgrounds whose commitment to the undeserved is transforming their communities.  For more information visit their website
