About Brisbane Kite Festival - Sunday 21 August 2022
The annual Brisbane Kite Festival will be a fantastic day for the whole family with spectacular, gorgeous kites in the sky and a sea of colour highlighting beautifully crafted masterpieces. Don’t look up too long or you’ll miss the action on the ground: food and drink stalls, Carina Men's Shed, kite entertainment and plenty of space to fly your own kite, or purchase one on the day.
with special assistance from Kites Queensland
and proudly supported by Brisbane City Council.
Bring the whole family along to enjoy a day of fun and kite flying. A range of child-friendly activities will include face painting, rides and of course flying a kite. Hot food and cold drinks will be available until sold out, or bring along a picnic/rug/chairs. See below for a full list of food stalls.
There will be a designated area for the public to fly their kites, alongside professional kite flyers. Bring along your own masterpiece, or purchase one on the day. If you need help to get your kite airborne, don’t panic – our professional kite flyers will be happy to help you!
While the organising Rotary clubs have booked the park with Brisbane City Council for use during the Kite Festival, the council by-laws regarding dogs in public places remain unchanged:
Pets must be supervised and on a leash at all times.
Please consider carefully whether your beloved pet will be comfortable among crowds.
Getting to there by public transport is easy – see the Translink website for options for:
- Cannon Hill Bus Station or
- Murrarie train station on the Cleveland Line
- Both are an easy 5-10 minute walk along flat well-signed paths
- Limited free parking is also available
The day will go ahead unless otherwise publicised. If details do change, Kite Festival news will be posted here, and on our Facebook page as soon as decisions are made.
Hopefully it will be a beautiful autumn day with blue skies and plenty of breeze to keep the kites flying.
Gold coin and eftpos donations will be accepted on the day. All proceeds will be used for local and international community projects run by Rotary Club of Balmoral, and Rotary Club of Carindale. Check out their websites for more information on projects they’re leading, locally and globally.
