St Anne’s International Kite Festival 2018
St Anne’s International Kite Festival 2018

St Annes Kite Festival. Joined by the Al-Farsi Kite Team from Kuwait, kite clubs and flyers from across the UK will bring the Summer holidays to a spectacular close on the first weekend in September. The skies above St Annes seafront will be awash with colour on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday as fabulous display kites take to the air on the beach adjacent to the pier.

Weather permitting, the event promises a thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable day out for young and old alike. This year we’ll be kicking things off on St Anne’s beach with a Friday night launch event on 31st August from 7.00pm – 9.30pm then the weekend kite festival runs from 11.00am to 5.00pm on Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd September 2018. Time to gather friends and family together for All The Fun Of The Air!

And don’t forget to bring your teddy bear or a cuddly toy to take part in the teddy parachute drop sponsored by Excel Fostering. Each brave teddy will receive a very special certificate of achievement.


Please use FY8 1NW for SAT NAV directions to all-day parking for £5.00. All profits from the carpark go towards next year’s event. Look out for the kites on St Annes Beach just off North Promenade, close to St Annes Pier. If you’d prefer not to have to park your car, the train station is just a 5-minute walk from the beach.
