Returning to Belle Isle for its second year, the Detroit Kite Festival is a free nonprofit event that aims to provide a platform for play.

Guests are invited to purchase or borrow kites onsite: Children will have an opportunity to visit the DIA Education Studio’s Kite Making Tent to craft their own high-flyers, while guests of all ages are encouraged to tinker and explore. Visitors can stop by the "Will It Fly?" tent to learn about kite aerodynamics and how to better design your creation. And for the kite-shy, the Windjammers Kite Team will perform a synchronized kite show.

The 2018 Detroit Kite Festival begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 15 at Belle Isle's Cricket Field located next to the Belle Isle Casino; detroitkitefestival.org; The event is free and open to the public.
