With a great lineup of kite artists attending from across North America and beyond, this year’s SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival will offer another exciting weekend of unique entertainment.

 

On June 24 and 25, 2017 the skies above Swift Current, SK will fill with an incredible array of beautiful and colourful kites, with plenty of other activities for the whole family to enjoy. This world-class event attracts kite flyers, enthusiasts and fun loving people from across the globe to one prairie field to enjoy an exciting weekend of kiting and family fun.  Over 10,000 visitors from across the province and across Canada and the northern tier of the United States will descend on Windscape Field to make and fly their own kites and to watch celebrity kite flyers and aerial-themed on-and off-field entertainment celebrating the start of summer.

This year’s festival celebrates Windscape’s 13th anniversary, and welcomes a number of celebrity flyers from years past, bringing them back to the Windscape Field to showcase their creations and skills alongside some brand-new talent from across the globe. Featuring enormous, wonderful kites and inflatables, out-of-this-world stunt kite flyers, quad line flyers and teams that thrill the crowd, and colourful banners to brighten up the festival grounds, this free admission family festival truly offers something for everyone.

At Windscape, everyone can experience the thrill of flying in the vast Saskatchewan air space with some of the world's best kite artists and performers. The public is invited to fly their own kites. New owners of dual-line stunt kites are encouraged to enjoy a free lesson with our qualified instructor, to ensure a successful afternoon of flying. If your kite ends up taking one too many nose-dives, bring the broken kite to our free-of-charge kite hospital where the repairs will be attempted by the celebrity kite flyers.

There is plenty to do at the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival but the main activity is to sit back watch all the kites. Many people bring a chair and umbrella to sit for hours watching the parade of interesting kites and performances.

The kite festival is held in conjunction with Long Day’s Night music festival, which runs Thursday through Sunday at the Windscape Field.
With exciting kites, fun activities, and great musical entertainment, the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival 2017 is shaping up to be a can’t-miss event this coming summer.

Please join us for the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current on the Southwest Hill. The festival begins on Saturday, June 24 at 10:00 am and has no admission charge. It runs Sunday until 5:00 pm.
