Windscape Kite Festival

Swift Current has a destination kite festival every year in June.  Kite flyers come from all over U.S. and Canada to participate in many categories.  There are dances to classical music, multiple stringed kites, groups who do synchronized flying, novelty kites and then just every day fliers.  Many of these performers have participated in festivals all over the world, including Germany, France, Belgium, Israel, Africa, India, Thailand and China.



There is a Kite Store and a children's tent.  There are kite workshops and even a kite hospital.  The Long Day's Night Music Festival complements the kite festival with good entertainment for three evenings.






And the best part...it is absolutely free!  Check it out at www.windscapekitefestival.ca
