About the Kite Festival
The International Kite Festival Scheveningen in The Hague is an annual event that proves just how much fun kites can be for adults and children alike.
The largest event of its kind in the Netherlands, the festival fills the beach with enthusiastic viewers while the sky is flooded with flying colours and designs by over 100 kite-flyers from around the world, who will perform demonstrations and stunts.
All kinds of kite designs
Don't mistake this for a children's fair; these kites are large and impressive. In a seeming defiance of gravity, the kites range from the everyday to more intricate designs like whales, lobsters, pandas and more.
Furthermore, the kites are divided into categories, making it easier for guests to discover their favourite kite niche. With top-sports, sci-fi, culture, science and nature all represented, visitors are sure to find something that will appeal to their fascination. And of course, the sheer number of flying wonders is an attraction by itself!
Throughout the day there will be all kinds of kite demonstrations. You will be able to see Revolution Kites while music plays, you can see freestyle sport flying and power kite demonstrations, and follow a stunt flying workshop.
You will also be able to join in by purchasing your own kite at a nearby stall. The day programme is dependent on the weather.
During the evening, from around 8pm onward, there will be an impressive night kiting show with thousands of lights.
