Berkeley Kite Festival


Though we don't in any way want to diminish the challenges facing us today, it really is this simple: getting outdoors, flying a kite, and looking up are good for us. They have always been good for us, and are more important now than ever before. For over three decades, the Berkeley Kite Festival has been an important part of the rich cultural heritage and diversity that make Berkeley such an exciting place to live. We will miss seeing all of you, and will especially miss working with our volunteer team that tops 100 members. Best wishes and health to all of you. Here at and we hope that our efforts to encourage kite flying and kite making this summer can do just a little bit to make our world brighter, stronger, today and into the future.

Stay Safe and Happy Flying,
Tom McAlister, Lisa Bullwinkel, and the Berkeley Kite Festival Team
