This family-friendly tradition for Austinites is preparing for their 2019 event and it is just around the corner.
More Than a Kite Contest
The ABC Kite Fest has been around since 1929 when it started off as a simple kite contest. It has since evolved into a day-long event full of exciting activities. Of course, the showcase for this exciting event is the traditional kite flying contest where you can put your mettle to the test under the Austin windy sky. Show off your personal creation at the showcase and see what this entertaining event is all about. Additional activities throughout the day include a fun run and the MossFest, a mini music festival that plays your kids’ favorite music.
Thousands of Austinites attend this free festival every year which is considered to be the longest-running kite festival in the entire country! All proceeds from the ABC Kite Festival go directly to the Moss Pieratt Foundation and Communities in Schools of Texas. Enjoy this exciting festival while helping out a great cause in Austin!
