Kenya Kite festival, Mar. 15 2015 @ Nairobi Polo Club

Kite Festival
Kenya Kite festival is East & Central Africa’s premier kiting event, organized by Urban Live Events. It’s the second International kite festival in the continent after South Africa that brings together kite fliers, kite makers and kite enthusiasts from around the world.

Since inception in August 2012, the festival has grown to become a must attend outdoor family fun day event. Festival goers are treated to a one of a kind kiting experience that often includes exciting kiting stunts, competitions, aero show displays and lots of fun filled activities. The highlight being an amazing 20-30 feet show kite displays from professional kiters.

This year we will be holding the fourth edition of the Kenya Kite Festival and everyone’s invited. Be sure to bring your own kites to partake in some amateur kiting. Food, drinks and kites will be available for purchase.
