Los Alamos Kite Festival

April 26 @ 8:00 am - April 28 @ 5:00 pm

Free

The Los Alamos Arts Council has been hosting this event since 1996. The largest of its kind in northern New Mexico, the Festival includes music, food, kite-building workshops, and lots of kite flying. Kite enthusiasts from all over the southwest fly their large, intricately shaped kites and hand-made flying works of art, demonstrate stunt-kite flying, and grace the fields with incredibly colorful banners. Free kite-building workshops for kids are held on Saturday and Sunday afternoon where children build and decorate simple kites with assistance from volunteers. Kids use both their craft and artistic skills to put literally hundreds of these kites up in the sky. For the six-and-under crowd, pre-built kites are available for decorating. A kite hospital is staffed with kite medics to mend the inevitable broken and injured kites using sticks, duct tape, and ingenuity. Everyone young at heart is invited. Bring a kite, build a kite, fly a kite, or just take in the artful scene.
