  • Choreographed team sport kite routines, including a display from the current World Sport Kite Champions.
  • Incredible animal shapes from New Zealand born festival favourite Peter Lynn
  • Aerial combat with traditional Japanese fighting kites - the winner is the last kite left flying!

  • FREE children's kite making workshops
  • Children's play structures, specialist kite traders, and plenty to eat and drink!

The Bristol International Festival of Kites and Air Creations runs from 11am to 5pm over the first weekend of September and will be supporting the Air Ambulance Trust for the second year running.
