Rogallo Kite Festival
Francis Rogallo was a NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the stunt kites, power kites, and hang gliders that are flown today. We invite you to join us and fly a kite at the 34th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival to celebrate Francis Rogallo and his many accomplishments.
Kitty Hawk Kites and friends will be displaying amazing 30 – 100 ft kites on top of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. Join us and fly a kite of your own, take part in FREE stunt kite lessons, kite coloring for the kiddos, or just enjoy the spectacular kites as the fly in the sky.
Calling all Rev Flyers!
Join us for the Inaugural East Coast Revolution Invitational. Your Rev Kite is your invitation! There will be a novice (under 2 years of experience) and an expert (over 2 years of experience) categories. Cash prizes and the coveted, custom trophy Revolution kite are just just two of the many reasons to compete. Competition schedule listed below.
Prospective Rev Flyers
Revolution will also be bringing their simulation kite to introduce new flyers to the sport! Pass certain goals and receive Rev Bucks to use towards your first Rev purchase at Kitty Hawk Kites.
