The 96th ABC Kite Festival

April 14 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Held every spring in Zilker Park, the ABC Kite Fest is one of Austin’s most beloved, family-friendly traditions. The festival boasts day-long activities for all ages, including the traditional kite flying contest and showcase, and MossFest, a children’s music concert. Soar into spring and join thousands of Austinites for a free, all-day event filled with kite making, flying and gazing.

Founded as a “Kite Tournament” in 1929 by The Exchange Club of Austin, the city’s annual kite festival was designed to foster creativity among children. Now in its 96th year, ABC Kite Fest is the country’s longest running festival of its kind, underwritten by ABC Home and Commercial Services and produced by Friends of the ABC Kite Fest, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
