Sunfest Kite Festival

Bring the entire family and let your spirits soar! Join The Kite Loft for the best kite festival on the East Coast on Thursday, September 21 till Sunday, September 24, 2017. Thousands of spectators and kiting friends from across the country will meet in Ocean City, Maryland for five fun-filled days of kite competitions, games, relays, mass ascensions, workshops, fun and frolic.

This year The Kite Loft welcomes Mike Van Meers returning as our co-coordinator. Mike will be holding impromptu games for the entire family with opportunities to win one of many fun prizes.

Let's all paint the sky...

Stroll along Ocean City's famous Boardwalk and witness hundreds of beautiful ground and high flying displays. Afterwards cast a vote for your favorite display during the festival's "People's Choice" award.
