The ABC Kite Fest, one of Austin’s most iconic traditions, returns for its 92nd year. In accordance with local health and safety guidelines, the festival will be a city-wide celebration of Austin’s parks in partnership with Austin Parks Foundation. Sponsored in part by KXAN and Texas Mutual, this year’s ABC Kite Fest encourages Austinites to get outside and fly a kite at their neighborhood park while wearing proper face coverings and maintaining safe social distance from others.

All participating kite fliers are encouraged to share photos and videos of their kite-flying experience with the ABC Kite Fest by tagging the festival on Instagram and Facebook. Austin Parks Foundation recommends the following parks and green spaces with ample open space for kite flying during this year’s ABC Kite Fest: Bartholomew District Park, Dick Nichols District Park, and Northwest District Park.
