Soar Into the Sunfest Kite Festival 2020

Posted On: 10/5/20

Grab your kites and hit the road for Ocean City’s Sunfest Kite Festival 2020! Hosted by the Kite Loft on 5th St. in OCMD, the annual Sunfest Kite Festival is a high-flying extravaganza. Bring your beach chairs and hit the sand, or walk along the boardwalk as bright colors soar through the sky! This funfest for fliers and spectators began on Thursday, October 1st, and will run through Sunday, October 4th. 

Take in the breathtaking views of giant, colorful kites soaring through the skies outside of the Kite Loft on 5th Street, and bring the whole family for a weekend full of fun activities! Whether you have one kite that you love to send through the air or a collection of colorful pieces. Everyone is welcome to fly on the Ocean City beach, and set up ground displays in front of the Kite Loft, and south through 4th St. 

Since flyers will need to spread out to prevent kite-lines from turning into a tangled mess, the Sunfest Kite Festival makes for the perfect social distancing activity for you and your family! Spectators are welcome to view the kites from the Boardwalk, or from the beach
