International KITE Festival

Dieppe KITE International is the largest festival of its kind in North America.

The world's best kite fliers from various countries converge on Dieppe's Dover Park during a busy week of activities in August to fly kites of all colours, shapes and sizes.

Dieppe KITE International was launched in 2001 and was held every two years. It became an annual event in 2010.

The festival owes a large part of its success to the collaboration between internationally renowned kite fliers. Their participation is proof of the event's quality and the esteem in which it holds in the kite-flying community.

The festival's main features - its kites - offer a unique and original experience that can only be found here. Kite disciplines vary greatly. They include, among others, extreme acrobatic kite flying, Rokkaku combats and creative kites.
