Spring Canyon Park
Fort Collins, CO

Grab your kite and come out to Spring Canyon Community Park for the 9th Annual Kites in the Park Festival. Presented by City of Fort Collins.

Kites in the Park is a FREE family-friendly community event that celebrates all things kites. We’ll welcome fliers from around the world who will perform ballets, battle kites, and fly giant tiger, fish and bird kites.

Youth are welcome to make their own kite to take home. Also, enjoy the great food, activities, demonstrations, and giveaways that will take place throughout the day.

This year, we’ve expanded attractions throughout the entire park! Free parking will be available off-site and we’ll have free shuttles to bring you to the park. Carpooling and shuttle transport strongly recommended. With nearly 8,000 visitors, the parking fills up fast!

For more information there is the city website which has more details and is official. http://www.fcgov.com/kites
