Up, up and away… join The Kite Loft for the Sunfest Kite Festival in town! Stroll the boardwalk, or admire from the sandy beaches as this Sunfest weekend fills the sky with colorful kites.

The festival will be from Thursday, September 20 to Sunday, September 23. Thousands of spectators and kite-lovers from all over the country will join together this weekend in Ocean City for kite competitions, games, workshops and other activities.

This year, The Kite Loft will welcome Mike Van Meers, returning co-coordinator. Mike will hold impromptu games for the entire family with opportunities to win fun prizes.

Bring the whole family to enjoy this exciting, vibrant festival! Don’t forget to cast your votes for your favorite display for the festival’s “People’s Choice” award.

Each day will feature unique showcases, lessons and events. From free sport kite lessons to dragon showcases to a sunfest auction, the all-day excitement never ends. On Saturday, make sure you and your kids are around at 1:30 pm for Kids Day Kite Fly! The Kite Loft will hand out free kites to the first 60 kids between age of 5 and 12.
