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.

TKO Sport Team

The name “TKO Sport Kite Team” derived from the names of the first letters of the three different states, that the team’s original members lived in (Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma), in the United States of America.

The members that will be joining Windscape for 2017 are, Troy Gunn, Shane Snowden, and Jerry Hershey.

Troy Gunn’s kite flying performances include, the flying of Multiple sport kites at one time by himself. This includes flying two sport kites at the same time, or flying a dual line and quad line sport kite at the same time! In between sport kite performances, Troy entertains people by flying many of his large single line kites. When the opportunity is available, Troy also performs indoor sport kite demonstrations, without wind or fans of any kind!

Shane Snowden used to live in Kansas, and a kiter buy the name of Gary Pittman introduced me to stunt kite flying. Gary really helped him learn to fly kites in the beginning, as did another kite flier by the name of David Bui. He has been hooked on kites every since then! > Since 1999, he has been traveling to most all festivals and event demos with th team TKO Sport Team.

Jerry Hershey found his love for kites in 1992, when a friend brought a dual-line stunt kite to an annual 4th of July pool party. On a nearby open field, the men took turns crashing the kite and laughing at each other. He then received a kite for his birthday and after that, nearly every spare moment was spent flying.
