Redcar Kite Festival

May 25 @ 11:00 am - May 26 @ 5:00 pm


Redcar Kite Festival is an exciting new festival where Kites of all descriptions, sizes and colours will take to the air for two days of exhilarating aerial displays over Majuba beach. Renowned kite experts from Northern Kite Group will take to the skies providing spectacular displays, choreographed flying routines and epic soring stunt shows.

Whilst the amazing kites will be the highlight of the event, the festival will play host to a whole range of exciting activities and workshops. Head over to the beginner’s beach corner to perfect your kite flying skills or join Infinite Arts as you create your very own kite to take to the sky. Join nationally renowned land artist, James Brunt to create brilliant beach art using natural resources and found objects or make windmills with local artist Adele Catchpole.

Redcar Kite Festival will also see the launch of a new artisan food and beverage market as part of the event programme. The High-Flying Market will feature a range of local and regional traders, as well as live music, performances, and street theatre.
