"Spectacular kites of all shapes, sizes and styles!"

Come fly with us at the Otaki Kite Festival held annually at our stunning Otaki Beach on the Kapiti Coast, just one hour’s drive north of Wellington.

This is a FREE EVENT!

2019 will be the 6th kite festival presented by the Otaki Promotions Group Inc. Spectacular kites from around the world, stunt kite displays by Queensland’s Phoenix Kite Collective, on-stage entertainment, food and craft stalls and more. A day out on the fabulous Otaki Beach for the whole family. Previous festivals have seen an audience of up to 18,000 over the two days enjoying a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere.

Spectacular kites of all shapes, sizes and styles thrill those viewing from the beach, above the dunes and the Pavilion roof. Expect to be delighted by the sight of massive inflatable kites, stained glass window and bug kites through to tiny fluttering seagull kites.

Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 February 2019 – kites flying 10am - 4pm (weather/wind dependent) plus on-stage entertainment until 5pm. Festival food & drink, markets stalls plus kids' entertainment. Visit our food and drink vendors located around the site and browse the market stalls to find something special to take home! Be sure to look out for the kiddies’ entertainment area too, including bouncy castle and merry-go-round.

We’re well known for entertaining our visitors both on and off the beach at the Otaki Kite Festival. All entertainment and activities are weather dependent and may vary accordingly.
