You will be surprised to know that festivals never end in Jaipur as the city hosts a string of fun-filled and colorful celebrations all through the year. Are you interested in flying kites and want to be a part of the festival that celebrates just that with more fun and excitement? Well, Kite Festival is one such annual event which lets you do that on a bigger platform. The event is organised at the Polo Ground by the Jaipur Tourism Development Corporation and dozens of kite fliers come to participate from different parts of the world. You can spot almost every shape and type of Kite (some of them are as big as 1.5 km) with social messages, politicians’ caricatures or even showcase social issues.

The festival has two parts, namely
exhibition flying and the kite flying competition. The exhibition flying is more of an entertainment affair, where master kite fliers showcase their skills by flying their kites in all kinds of captivating styles. On the other hand, in the kite flying competition, contestants fiercely vie for awards and trophies. The opening ceremony is quite a sight as well when Air Force helicopters bombard the place with countless colourful kites. Another major highlight is the kite market complete with night time illuminated kite (tukal) displays, food stalls, and cultural events.

Venue: Polo Ground
