Family Day Kite Festival
A kite is a poem, on a string, in the sky. . .


A beloved San Francisco tradition has come to the Presidio. The Family Day Kite Festival, which was held annually on the Marina Green since 1978, will now bring its color and magic to the Presidio's beautiful Main Parade Ground.


This free, open-air celebration features the acrobatic kites of world champions as well as the hand-made entries of amateurs. All are welcome, and free kites will be provided to kids of all ages.

Don't miss:


  • Free kite-making for kids at the Walt Disney Family Museum Make-a-Kite Pavilion
  • Special guest: celebrated artist and kite maker Tyrus Wong
  • Kite-flying contests for amateurs and professionals
  • Giant and miniature “show kites”
  • Champion aerobatic & stunt kite fliers
  • Catch-a-Kite-Tail Contest
