Kids & Kites Festival

Every spring, kids in Chicago step out into the sunshine and embrace the wind at the Chicago Kids & Kites Festival, an annual tradition established by our former mayor and kite enthusiast, Richard M. Daley. This year marks the 16th annual festival, and will be held on Saturday, May 3 at Cricket Hill in Montrose Harbor, from 10am – 4pm. Arrive early: 5,000 free kite kits will be gifted the first 5,000 children!

There is so much to see and do at this fun outdoor fest: Chicago Kite, Chicago based kite specialists, will demonstrate their professional kite-flying skills and also offer a large range of kites for sale. Get your face painted, pilot a giant kite, or hop aboard the Kohl’s Children Museum StoryBus.
