The Zilker Park Kite Festival is one of Austin's best-known free annual events. Held on the first Sunday of March, it is the kick-off to the hundreds of springtime activities in Austin.
This is an event where everyone is welcome to attend (pets too!). There is no admission to attend or to participate in the contest. Most folks come out to see the spectacular sight of hundreds of kites in the sky and to enjoy a spring day in the park.
Zilker Park is an amazing green space ideal for everything from festivals, to lounging in the sun, breathing fresh air and spacing the indoors. Bring your blanket, your picnic basket and some sunproof cream!!
