10th Street and Piedmont Avenue
The Atlanta World Kite Festival and Expo is the brainchild of a group of individuals here in the city who wanted to create a memorable family event centered around kite flying, outdoor activities, fun and games. Our goal was an event that is engaging and family oriented with fun and exciting activities. We also wanted to bring together everyone in the Metropolitan Atlanta area . In 2012, it was decided the Atlanta World Kite Festival and Expo would be presented at Piedmont Park in the Meadow on the fourth Saturday of October annually to close out Atlanta’s popular festival season. We have enjoyed providing a place for families to run and play for the past 4 years.
Since its inception the AWKFE has successfully combined kite flying and demonstrations, live entertainment, food and more. This year we will introduce our new STEAM section, along with our annual Kite Making and Pumpkin Decorating contest. These are friendly competitions that promote the love of Kite Flying and other outdoor family activities. Join us for the KITE MAKING competition and gain a whole new appreciation for kite flying. All kite lovers and flyers are encouraged to participate, bringing all of those they love along for the ride.
Time: 1-6 pm
