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.

Sharon Musto

Sharon Musto is enthralled by spectacular skies, wide open spaces, and KITES!  She is delighted to be back for Windscape again this year!

Sharon has been building and flying kites since 1995. From the very beginning, she found her enthusiasm too great to be contained, so she shared it, promoting kites as much as life would allow!  As a teacher, she found that her job meshed well with her hobby because there are many, many ways kites can be used as a teaching tool at all grade levels, and all levels of ability. Sharon offers workshops in schools, at professional development “in-services” for teachers, and at conferences.

Sharon’s kites have garnered numerous awards and recognition both nationally and internationally, but Musto says she still feels like a novice. There are so many design ideas to explore, and the possibilities for graphics on kites are as endless as the sky is high and wide.

Internationally, Sharon has competed in and judged numerous kite building competitions at the ‘Masters’ level, participated in numerous exhibits and served as International Director of the American Kitefliers Association (2000 to 2006) representing members in more than 30 countries around the world.

In 2010, Sharon moved to Alberta where she has teamed up with the Kite Guys creating kites, custom banners and windsocks.  They continue to present kitemaking workshops to “children” of all ages at every opportunity. She also continues to promote kiting in Canada as a representative of the Canadian Kite Federation/ Fédération Canadienne du Cerf-Volant.

“Kites have enriched my life immensely. They offer a means of self-expression, of enjoying the outdoors, connecting with other people, and they’re a powerful stress reliever — among countless other merits!”
