Grand Island (NE) Kite Festival

June 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

The Grand Island Kite Festival takes place on the 15 acres of grassy land used for soccer fields at the Veterans Athletic Complex, 2820 North Broadwell Avenue in Grand Island, NE. Grand Island and Hall County are centrally located in the middle of the United States. The highways serving Grand Island are like the spokes of a wheel and provide ease in commuting from almost any location. Serving Grand Island directly are Interstate 80, U.S. Highways 30, 34 and 281 and Nebraska Highway 2, with key lateral connections to U.S. Highway 6 and Nebraska Highways 92, 14 and 11.

There are no power lines in the area of the soccer fields.

For anyone who’s looking for something different and fun to do on Saturday, June 29th from the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and/or Sunday, June 30th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You can choose to fly your own kite or simply watch other kite flyers, including “professional” kite fliers who maneuver kites of unbelievable shapes and sizes. Food trucks will be on site.
