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.

David McIntyre

David McIntyre hails from Mitchell,Ontario. His interest in kiting started when he was in his early teenage years, making his own kites with wood, plastic garbage bags, and his mother’s old stockings. He made diamond, double diamond, and box kites. His interests then changed.

About nine years ago, while at a beach on Lake Huron, David’s interest in kites was restored when he met a man flying his big kites. Upon talking to him, he passed along valuable information about kiting.

David made a few purchases of some small inflatable kites and was hooked. He has since been purchasing bigger and then larger inflatable kites.

David has attended many club flies and some kite festivals in Canada and the USA. On attending these he has learned more and has met a lot of kiters from around the world, some of which have become close friends. He always tries to promote kiting to the public, and he finds kiting very relaxing and enjoyable.
