Dubai comes back to life with the much-awaited Dubai International Kite Fest 2016, a spectacular family fun event that brings together the entire multinational community for a colourful, action-packed carnival experience.

The first Dubai International Kite Fest created history with 15,000 people flying kites simultaneously at 15 different schools across Dubai to attempt an entry into the Guiness Book of World Records. This year, the festival returns with the promise of a larger, grander experience with a stupendous showcase that features a Sports Kite Flying Championship,Synchronized Kite Flying, Kite Surfing, Kite Buggying, Kite Boarding and Night Kite Flying – a spectacle that will light up the beach side with mesmerising floating lights. With kites of various hues, shape & size decorating the Dubai skyline, Kite Making Workshops, Children’s Play area, Food Courts and fantastic  music & dance performances, the event is packed with excitement and fun for everyone.

Supported by the International Kite Flying Association (USA) & Dubai Festival & Retail Establishment (DFRE), the Dubai International Kite Festival will be held from March 17th to 19th at Jumeriah Beach.
