Creative Alliance & The Friends of Patterson Park present
The Big Baltimore Kite Fest!

Blowing into Patterson Park for the first time this spring, The Big Baltimore Kite Festival fills the sky with vibrant colors and celebrates the broad spectrum of cultures that make up East Baltimore! Join us near the Pagoda to make your own kite, listen to breezy music, participate in the “Will It Fly” competition, and enjoy a day outside in our beautiful park!

Bring a picnic blanket, bring a kite, bring your friends!


Will It Fly Competition:

Artists, kids, wind lovers - we want to see the most creative things in the sky possible! 
1. It can’t be a traditional kite. 
2. It can’t have a motor or electronics.
3. It must have a string.
4. You just need to run/roll/spin and get it into the air for 20 seconds. 

Win prizes in lots of odd categories!

View the festival from the sky - the Pagoda is open!

¡Volando por el viento en el Parque Patterson, presentamos por la primera vez el Gran Festival de Cometas de Baltimore! Con la participación de la comunidad, llenamos el cielo con colores brillantes y celebramos la gran diversidad de culturas de nuestros vecinos ubicados en el este y sureste de Baltimore! Hay actividades durante el festival cerca de la Pagoda para construir sus propias cometas- o papalotes--. También pueden disfrutar de música y participar en la competición “¿Se va a volar?”.
