COME FLY WITH US!

On September 6th and 7th, 2014 the Cleveland International Kite Festival will once again bring kite fliers to Edgewater Park in Cleveland.  The Ohio Society for the Elevation of Kites (OSEK) has sponsored this festival for 27 years of its 37 year history as a club.  Each day's activities begin at 11 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.

With kite flying enthusiasts from Canada now attending our festival, we became International, and now include both country's National Anthems about noon both days. The Windjammers International Performance Sport Kite Team will also perform twice each day.

Open flying areas for everybody will flank a demonstration and games area in the center of the huge meadow at Edgewater Park.  So bring your kites and picnics, share and enjoy the contests and summer days. Children's kite making workshops will be held twice each day. Kites cost $3 each. No other charges are made for attendance, parking or participation. 

After the National Anthems, the Demo field will be used to show folks how to fly sport kites. This Learn To Fly hour will be manned by experienced members of kite clubs.  After that, the field will be use for games and sky ballet demonstrations.
