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.

Scott Hampton

Scott has been providing the kite world with his art for many years. His banners and kites are distinctive with their bright colors and original graphics. He has become an expert in the use of Design Master Paints on ripstop nylon that allows him to make full use of color gradients. He is always willing to share his techniques with others. When traveling abroad to festivals he is fully committed to his display presentation and always ready to answer questions about his work.

In Scott’s own words:

“I make stuff to satisfy my inner desire to… make stuff. For the past 20+ years it’s been banners and kites ( some of which actually fly). I always enjoy what I make and sometimes I’m very pleased with the outcome (that’s why I don’t sell very much, I get attached to it). It’s all about building what’s aesthetically pleasing to me (of course I have no formal art training). I enjoy the drawing, designing, painting, and appliquéing aspect of my work. The sparring and bridling part is such a chore but I realize those are necessities in order to bring the idea to life.”
