46th Annual Wright Kite Festival

July 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Take flight where flight first began with Kitty Hawk Kites and the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Enjoy a walk on the hallowed grounds where Wilbur and Orville took their historic first flight in 1903, then come join us for some fun flight of your own.

Large 30 – 100 foot kites will be flying high on display. We invite you to come fly kites of your own, take FREE stunt and power kite flying lessons, and bring the kiddos on over to our kite-making station.

Admission to the National Park is $10 for ages 16+, but participation in the kite festival is totally FREE!

The Wright Brothers National Memorial grounds are open daily from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM. (Free Entrance to National Parks for Current Military, Veterans, and Gold Star Families. Current members of the US Armed Forces and their dependents can enter national parks for free with an Interagency Military Annual Pass through the America the Beautiful – National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass (Interagency) Program.
