Lincoln City Fall Kite Festival, October 8-9, 2011

The Lincoln City Fall Kite Festival is held on the beach, in the center of Lincoln City, at the D-River Wayside from 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

September 29, 1979 was the date of the very first Fall Kite Festival in Lincoln City. Many of the original organizers still participate in stunning aerial displays and exquisite kite ballets. Several featured fliers say their passion for kite flying started in Lincoln City.

This year’s theme is “Rockin’ the Rokkaku!” The festival will include kite flying demonstrations by experts, including Connor Doran, a finalist in 2010 on the top-rated NBC series, America’s Got Talent! Connor auditioned along with 90,000 people and brought indoor kite flying to the world.

The weekend includes featured flyers, family-friendly activities like kite-making, a kid’s kite parade, a Rokkaku (six-sided kite) aerial battle with past national champion Ronda Brewer, and a mass ascension.

Schedule for both days:
