IT ALL STARTED WHEN...

In 2011, a group of friends and family decided to create an event centered around kites to make a unique and positive contribution to their city.  What they came up with is now the 5th Annual Atlanta World Kite Festival and Expo.  Our festival allows an opportunity for young and old alike to sit, learn and share with families from all over the world.  You can find us every 4th Saturday in October soaring into fall with a day that promotes protection of the planet, peace, friendship, and understanding between all people.  This year marks our 5th anniversary and over the years we have become a part of a wonderful festival and kiting community. With more fun in store, we are excited to bring you the best kite festival yet!
