Brisbane Kite Festival is a highlight of the year for many Brisbane families! In 2023, the Brisbane Kite Festival takes place on Sunday 20 August from 10am – 3pm at Tingalpa Model Aero Club on Brisbane’s southside.

The Brisbane Kite Festival is a celebration of all things that fly with a dazzling array of the most breathtaking kites you’ve ever seen take to Brisbane skies. During the event you can also enjoy:
- Food stalls
- Face painting
- Kite workshops
- LIVE entertainment

Can anyone fly a kite?
There will be professional kite fliers (try saying that three times fast) who will have a demarcated area for kite flying. There is also public space available for amateurs to get their kites up and about. Bring your own kite or purchase one from the festival!
We recommend packing a picnic blanket on the day so you can sit back and take it all in. As this is a public space, dogs are permitted at the Brisbane Kite Festival but they must be leashed and on their best behaviour at all times.
If the weather is poor on the day, the festival will be cancelled. However, that’s pretty unlikely. August is fabulous kite flying weather!
How do we get to the Brisbane Kite Festival?
Tingalpa Model Aero Club is situated 10 km south east of Brisbane within the Minnippi Parkland, off Stanton Road West, Tingalpa.
Stanton Road West is a little tricky to find. It’s located off Wynnum Road and Graystone Street by Exit 100 of the Gateway Motorway.
What does it cost?
The Brisbane Kite Festival is free, but a gold coin donation is appreciated. The proceeds from entry fees and the market stalls go to the Rotary Clubs of Port of Brisbane, Carindale, and Balmoral.
Let’s go fly a kite!
