Austins Zilker Kite Fest March 4th 2018


The Zilker Kite Fest is an Austin tradition.  Held annually the first Sunday in March, weather-permitting, the Kite Fest is an event for all ages not to be missed.  2018 marks the 89th anniversary for the festival.  This free event features a variety of activities including kite contests, a fun run, and a children’s music concert.

In 1929, the simple kite contest was designed to encourage creativity in children.  Now, ABC Home and Commercial Services sponsors the festival and proceeds from the kite fest go to Communities in Schools of Central Texas and the Moss Pieratt Foundation


The contest part of the festival is open to anyone who wants to compete, and there is no entry fee. You may only enter using a homemade single line kite.  Participants can compete to win in a number of categories including: largest kite, smallest kite, youngest kite flier, oldest kite flier, strongest pulling kite, most unusual kite, steadiest kite, highest angle kite, and the 50 yard dash. Registration for the contest opens at 11 a.m. on the fourth at the festival, and the contest starts at 1 p.m.


This is the first year that there will be a fun run associated with the festival.  The 2.1 mile fun run starts at 9 am.  You can purchase tickets for the fun run here. The fun run start at the Zilker Moontower, and ends inside the festival near the MossFest stage.  For more information on the festival, please visit the ABC Kite Festival website.
