See the most magnificent kites flying in the sky above Stanmer Park at our annual event.

The Brighton Kite Festival is a feast for the eyes as kite enthusiasts from all around the country come to fly every type of kite from small but perfectly made small kites to absolutely huge kites as well as team kite flying displays.


The Festival

Based in Stanmer Park in the month of July, this fabulously colourful festival is set to be an impressive sight with Indian and rokkaku kites, kites made in the children's workshop, sports kites and some of the largest kites in the UK taking to the skies.  The event is free to attend but they do ask for a donation to park which goes towards funding the festival for following years.


Brighton Kite Flyers

Brighton Kite Festival is organised by the Brighton Kite Flyers who started life as a group of friends who like to fly kites back in the 1970s.  Now they are a thriving organisation of kite flyers and enthusiasts from all over the world who fly not only their own kites, but also the large inflatable display kites owned by the club.  It's a friendly and welcoming club that are always pleased to take on new members.
