The Grand Haven Kite Festival Returns in 2022

For 30 years visitors would come from all over to watch the kites fly in Grand Haven at the Great Lakes Kite Festival. After event organizers decided to end the festival in 2018, kite enthusiasts stepped up to keep it going under a new name: The Grand Haven Kite Festival.

After it's inaugural year in 2019, the Grand Haven Kite Festival was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and scheduling issues... but it's on in 2022!

The Kite Festival in Grand Haven makes its return to Grand Haven State Park on the shores of Lake Michigan May 21-22, 2022. Festival hours are 10a.m. to 5p.m

How Much Does the Kite Festival Cost?

Entry is free, however you may have to pay to park inside Grand Haven State Park. Visitors from out-of-state and those without a recreational pass on their Michigan license plate tab will have to pay. Parking is free for those with a recreational pass.

What Can You Expect at the Grand Haven Kite Festival?

According to VisitGrandHaven.com, you'll see colorful kites of all types as sizes at the Grand Haven Kite Festival.
