Let’s fly the Glasgow sky with kites!

Come along to Glasgow Kite Festival on July 22 in Bellahouston Park for a day of fun activities for all ages. You’ll have the chance to make, decorate and fly your own kite, as well as learn about the kite’s long history from ancient China to today.

There will be craft workshops, games and sports, a chance to try traditional Chinese clothing, a treasure hunt with a special prize, and, of course, kite flying. The festival is free, and open to all – you don’t need your own kite to join in!

Find us in Bellahouston Park, beside Mosspark Boulevard.

We’re working with local partners to host extra community kite-making workshops throughout July, join a group near you:

Glasgow Mela, Sunday 24 June
Gilded Lily, Thursday 5 July
Interfaith Glasgow, Saturday 14 July
Chinese Community Development Partnership, Wednesday 18th July
