37th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival

37th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival

Friday Saturday & Sunday, June 14th – 16th,2019

10:00am-4:00pm

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 development of stunt kites, power kites, and hang gliders that are flown today. We invite you to join us and fly a kite at the 37th 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 sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular kites as the fly in the sky.
