ABC Kite Fest – FREE In-Person Event – Austin, Texas

Soar into spring with one of Austin’s oldest traditions!

Held every spring, the ABC Kite Fest is one of Austin’s most beloved, family-friendly traditions. The festival boasts day-long activities for all ages, including the traditional kite flying contest and showcase, and MossFest, a children’s music concert. Soar into spring and join thousands of Austinites for a free, all-day event filled with kite making, flying and gazing.

Founded as a simple kite contest in 1929 by The Exchange Club of Austin, the city’s annual kite festival was designed to foster creativity among children. Now in its 96th year, ABC Kite Fest is the country’s longest running festival of its kind, underwritten by ABC Home and Commercial Services and produced by Friends of the ABC Kite Fest, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

Through support from sponsors and community partners, Friends of the ABC Kite Fest enables one of Austin’s longest-standing traditions to thrive and grow. Proceeds from ABC Kite Fest are gifted to Communities in Schools of Central Texas and the Moss Pieratt Foundation.
