Windscape Kite Festival

June 19 & 20, 2021 · 10am to 5pm · Swift Current, SK

In light of current events and future uncertainty, the Windscape and Long Day's Night teams have decided it is in everyone's best interest to cancel this year's events. We know large events like ours across the province bring so many wonderful things to life in Saskatchewan. They create great opportunities for strengthening the fabric of our communities, provide volunteer opportunities, and bring people together. We are committed to bringing Windscape and Long Day's Night back to life in 2021 and look forward to sharing the prairie skies again with all of you on June 17th to 20th, 2021.

The teams are working to bring all 2020 performers and vendors back for 2021. We are all in this together, and together we will go on and get through these troubled times.

Windscape Kite festival, which was founded in 2005, annually brings more than 11,000 fans to Swift Current on the summer solstice to watch the mastery of over 40 professional kite makers and performers from around the globe. The 2020 edition of the event would have featured artists from Belgium, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, British Columbia, and of course, Saskatchewan. We look forward to having all these artists back June 19th and 20th, 2021.

Long Day's Night Music Festival was established in 2003 and showcases upcoming Saskatchewan and Canadian musicians of a variety of genres under our beautiful starry skies. We are working to bring you a fantastic festival on June 17th to 20th, 2021.

In the meantime, we wish you all good health and to remain strong and positive in these very trying times.

Clara Kuhn and Sebastian Juttemeier

Clara Kuhn (28) from Birmingham, England and Sebastian Jüttemeier (26) from Norderney, a small island off the North coast of Germany have been making and flying kites together since 2010. They now live in Lemgo, Germany and continue to pursue their passion for kites. The team have an impressive collection of inflatable kites and banners for international displays, and are invited to fly their kites at many festivals throughout Europe.

Among their extensive collection of inflatable kites is a 30m Octopus, a 25m Gecko, four 6m Starfish, several fish and one of their newest projects, a 12m turtle. The oversize crabs were part of a workshop, and is one of a limited number made by German kite flyers in Cuxhaven.

The newest acquisition for the kite-flying pair is a 52m long wind Turbine. It is one of the biggest in Europe.

Team kiter-on-tour also have a large collection of French designed Eolia banners in a variety of colours. They make a very attractive background feature.

Sebastian and Clara like to share their enjoyment of kite flying and therefore can always be found flying something, regardless of wind or weather conditions. As a team they have developed a new “Top Kite”, which is designed to fly high on the lifter line and create more lift for the inflatable figures below. They are proud to be some of the youngest kite makers and flyers with such an impressive collection of kites and banners.

See you somewhere in the sky!
