The City of Fort Collins Recreation Department’s annual Kites in the Park is Sunday, May 20 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Spring Canyon Community Park (2626 W. Horsetooth Road, Fort Collins). The free event was cancelled last year because of a crazy May snowstorm.

Kites in the Park Highlights

  • Kite flying demonstrations
  • Kite flying competitions
  • Rokkaku kite battles
  • Stick rodeo, hosted by the Greeley Stampede
  • Local artisans, food trucks, and recreational enthusiasts will be at the festival with items for sale
  • First National Bank will offer free kite making kits to the first 500 youth who want to decorate their own kite.

Free Shuttle

Crowds exceeding 6,000 people are expected. A free shuttle service between the Colorado State University Equine Center (735 S. Overland Trail, Fort Collins) and Spring Canyon Community Park will be provided to ease parking and traffic around the park.
