We, at Atlantic Kite Festivals believe in bringing communities together by celebrating festivals. Our journey started in year 2013 where few of the friends started celebrating various events based on major festivals in South East Asia. By looking at participation from local communities we kept adding more and more events in our catalogue.
One Day, Few kids came to our event, Halifax Colour Festival with kites and that’s where idea came from to start Kite Festivals in Atlantic Region. The plan was long due and we did our first ever Kite Festival at Citadel Hill in 2017. And in the same year we did another kite festival at Rissers Beach with Sand castle competition. After these two successful events and reviews from participants, we decided to start doing more festivals like this in Atlantic Canada.
In 2019, we have planned four Kite Festivals in Nova Scotia in partnership with various municipalities and sand castle competitions. And also we will be doing our own Kite Festival at Citadel Hill which we have made an annual event which will occur in Every Second week of July.
We, at Atlantic Kite Festival love to see smiles on kids faces when they see these huge kites in the air. It’s even fun to fly. We need your support in growing these festivals across Atlantic Regions. If you want us to come and organize an event in your community please let us know. We would be happy to come.
