All you need to know about Bridlington Kite Festival

Some of the world’s largest inflatable kites will take to the skies above the dramatic cliffs of the East Yorkshire coast for the annual Bridlington Kite Festival this weekend.

Taking place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May, kites of all descriptions, sizes and colours will take to the air for two days of aerial displays over Sewerby Fields.

Year on year, internationally renowned experts return to the East Yorkshire coast to provide spectacular displays for thousands of spectators over the weekend. Alongside the kites, there will be food and drink stalls, fairground rides, face painting and children’s entertainment, making it an action-packed, fun-filled festival for all the family.

There will be professional demonstrations and visitors can get involved, with kites available for loan during supervised sessions.

Organised by the Visit East Yorkshire Events Team, the festival is one of several major events across East Yorkshire each year that helps to boost the local economy. The event is held in partnership with The Northern Kite Group, which formed in 1978, and has members across the country.

The festival will run from 10am to 5pm both days and is free to attend.

Adam Toes, tourism events manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Bridlington Kite Festival has become an event we really look forward to hosting in East Yorkshire.

“The Northern Kite Group always put on a packed programme of kite flying activities from kites dancing to music to synchronised displays.

“It promises to be a weekend of fun for all the family, bringing happy smiles to faces and a lot of memories to share. And don’t forget it is a free event.”

For those who love a fun fact about kites, the event’s website has plenty of information to get you in the mood for the festival.
