Attend the Oregon Coast Kite Festival in Rockaway Beach

Kite-flying is a beloved tradition along the Pacific Coast. In fact, there are multiple kite festivals in Oregon and Washington State! Without a doubt, our favorite is the Rockaway Beach Kite Festival. The 2018 festival will be the 41st year of the event and will be held August 17-19, 2018 at the Rockaway Beach Wayside.
The festival is sponsored by the American Kitefliers Association, which is the largest group of kiters in the world. The festival welcomes professional and amateur kite fliers of all ages. While there are prizes awarded every year, the festival likes to emphasize that the atmosphere is friendly and not competitive. Prizes can be awarded for everything from the nicest kite to which kite drags along the sand. This event is very kid-friendly, with kite-building and kite-flying lessons that will inspire the next generation of kiters!
Aside from the gorgeous displays of kites, you’ll also get to enjoy live music, delicious foods, and the goods from the local vendors.
