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 Tuttle has been interested in kites since the late 1970s when at the Ontario College of Art he was assigned a kite design project. This piqued his interest and he eventually became totally involved in kites and kite flying.

After a move to Vancouver in 1981 he began working at High as a Kite in Gastown and joined the British Columbia Kitefliers Association where he fulfilled various executive positions in the club structure over the years.  He is currently a member of the B.C.K.A and the A.K.A.

He first visited Swift Current in 1997 to help plan the first Windscape Kite Festival in 1998 and to curate the kite exhibition “On Blue – The Kite As Art”. He enjoyed the prairies and prairie people so much he came back to live. He now now assists with the planning and set-up of the current “Windscape” festival.

David enjoys building and flying single line kites of all types especially cellular designs and kite trains. He also enjoys collecting kite books and currently has a kite library of over 80 volumes.
