The Whidbey Island Kite Festival and Sportkite Competition is set to fill the sky at Camp Casey with colorful kites of all shapes and sizes.

Spectacular small and giant kites are flown on single lines. Kids activities include a teddy bear drop, kids kite making and other games each day. Mass ascensions which anyone may join in to fly their kites, happen at noon on the main field both days.

The event features sport kite competitions flying in dual and multi-line events as well as pairs and teams flying to music. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

On Saturday evening, at 7:30 p.m. at the Coupeville High School Gym, the popular Indoor Kite Competition will amaze you. Flying kites without wind - using only the fliers’ body and hand movements - this entertaining and unique event continues to astound and amaze people each year.

All events are free and open to the public.
