Fall Kite Festival, October 13-14, 2012 Fall Kite Festival in Lincoln City, Oregon

The Lincoln City Fall Kite Festival is held on the beach, in the center of Lincoln City, at the D-River Wayside from 10am-8:30pm on Saturday October 13th and from 10am-4pm on Sunday October 14th.

The weekend includes featured flyers, family-friendly activities such as kite-making, a kid’s kite parade, and a mass ascension.

This year’s theme is “Stars & Stripes.” The festival will include kite flying demonstrations by experts, and some of the most colorful “big” kites in the world! Join us as we display a dizzying array of red, white and blue kites!

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.
