Portsmouth International Kite Festival

Tens of thousands of spectators turn up from around the world to see the bird-shaped, grass-hopper shaped and space-shaped kites.

Recognised by the kite community as one of the world’s best (that’s right, there is an active kiting community in existence), this three day event sees kites of all shapes and sizes setting off into the skies. Tens of thousands of spectators turn up from around the world to see the bird-shaped, grass-hopper shaped and space-shaped kites, some of which would take up your entire living room. The festival, which usually takes place during the August Bank Holiday, is now in its 20th year. Entry is free.
