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.

Deb Lenzen

Deb Lenzen was raised on the prairie of North Dakota. She now lives in Prescott, Arizona.  Deb has been flying kites since 1985. She began making kites more than twenty years ago. Kitemaking gives her the opportunity to be a visual storyteller.  The majority of her kites tell the story of the respect and admiration she has for the Native American cultures of her birthplace in the Pacific Northwest, her work life in North Dakota and now her retirement days in the desert southwest. Those kites have been award winners at the Berkeley Kite Fest, Washington State International Kite Festival and the Comprehensive Kitemaking Competitions at the AKA Nationals. Her kite, Eyedazzler, was award AKA Grand Champion honors in 2017. She has been an invited guest at kite festivals from Oregon to New York and from Canada to Texas and even to Italy. She invites spectators to ask about the stories she launches into the sky. It is an honor for her to bring her kites and stories back HOME to the prairie.
