Mayo International Kite Festival

Mayo International Kite Festival 2019

The Mayo International Kite Festival took place on Sunday 21st July 2019 on Achill Island. The details below were published at the time and are retained here as a matter of record.

The International Mayo Kite Festival is one of the latest cool events on Achill Island. Held on Sunday 21st, it promises to be a very magical fun Weekend! (expect some good kites flying from Saturday already!)

Everyone is welcome to attend (pets too!). There is no admission to attend or to participate in the contest. Most folks come out to see the spectacular sight of hundreds of kites in the sky and to enjoy a summer day on beautiful Keel Beach.

On the Program, there will be a Kite making workshop for the little ones, there will be demonstrations by Pro Kite fliers, there will be some fun competitions like highest kite, best design, most colorful, best crash and loads of entertainment all day on the beach!

We will also provide free introductions to Kitesurfing and Demos by the pros! Good timing to give it a go or to take some nice shots with your camera!

Everyone is also welcome to bring their own kite and fly their colors very high in the Mayo Skies!
