UPDATE, MAY 13, 2022: Due to forecast wet weather, Brisbane Kite Festival has been postponed from Sunday, May 15 to Sunday, August 21. This article has been udpated to reflect that change.
Brisbane's big blue sky is about to get brighter — no, summer isn't here again, but Brisbane Kite Festival is. From 10am–3pm on Sunday, August 21, the high-flying event will take over the Murarrie Recreation Reserve, filling the air with colourful structures flapping in the wind.
It's a family-friendly affair, but kids small and big are welcome to roll out their kite and watch it float in the wind — and, if you need some help, there'll be kite workshops onsite, too. Plus, if you want to be part of the fun, but don't have your own kite, there'll be some for sale on the day, as well as professional kite flyers (yep, that's a thing) to give you a hand.
When you're not holding a string and staring at the clouds, you can also grab something to eat or do a little browsing, with the festival also featuring markets and food stalls. Entry is free — and pets are welcome, so bring your doggo along.
