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.
The Windscape Kite Festival welcomes an impressive cast of Celebrity Kite Flyers each year to present an incredible array of kites against the beautiful Saskatchewan sky. Over 40 national and international stars of kite performing and kite-making annually attend Windscape, most of whom have flown at some of the most prestigious and largest festivals in the world.
Along with the fantastic lineup of kite artist and flyers, the Windscape Kite Festival features a wide variety of activated for children and families. The TD Bank Children’s Tent offers many opportunities to keep kids of all ages entertained and engaged. There is a bubble station, balloon sculpting, a straw bale maze, a “Flying Dragon” booth and face-painting offered to people of all ages. The most popular activity at Windscape is the Kite Building Workshops, where everyone can create a custom made kite. With the assistance of skilled volunteers, both children and adults can construct a simple sled or bird-shaped kite guaranteed to fly.
There is no admission to come and enjoy the Windscape Kite Festival, and visitors receive a free festival program and passport upon arrival. There is plenty to do at Windscape, but it is still recommended to take the time to sit back and enjoy the sky filled with colour and characters. Bring a chair and join Swift Current in watching the parade of interesting kite performances and artistic masterpieces as they take over the vast Saskatchewan skies.
