The Discovery Museum is excited to announce its

4th annual Family Kite Festival will be on

Sunday, April 21st, 2013 from 11am-4pm.





April is National Kite Month and what better way to celebrate than to attend the 4th annual Family Kite Festival presented by the Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum and the American Kitefliers Association?


Going beyond paper, sticks and string, the kite festival takes kite flying to whole new heights! Professional kite fliers teach festival goers about different kinds of kites and kite history. After flying your own, take some time to watch demonstrations of choreographed "kite dancing" set to music!


Learn about aerodynamics and drag by taking a turn at our "bol" racing. How fast can you go while dragging a parachute kite behind you?


We'll have food vendors, a craft fair, face painting, a bounce house for the kids and so much more!




Over 3,000 attendees and we can't wait to meet even more of you this year! For pictures of our 2012 Kite Festival, please check out our Facebook Album here.
