Zilker Park
Free Admission

The Zilker Kite Festival, one of Austin's oldest (and funnest) annual events, has been a spring tradition for more than 80 years. Held for one day each March at Austin's landmark park, Zilker Park, the festival is a free event.

The kite contest begins at 1pm and is open to anyone with a home made kite. There are numerous kid and adult event categories for the contest, including Largest Kite and Most Unusual Kite. There is no early registration for the contest - it's only done onsite beginning at 11am.

The festival is family-friendly, kid-friendly, and even dog-friendly. Whether you plan to participate in the contest, just want to come out and fly a kite on your own, or are content sitting back and spending an afternoon watching a kite-filled Austin sky, everyone is welcome.

Don't have a kite? Not to worry - kites are available for purchase onsite and there are also workshops throughout the day where you can learn to construct your own.

Other kid-friendly activities, such as Moon Walks and face painting, are available along with merchandise and food vendors.

There's also a Zilker Park Kite Festival Weather Hotline @ 512-448-5483 in case of questionable weather. If the kite festival needs to be rescheduled due to weather, the event will be made up one week later on the following Sunday (March 14, 2010).
