Creative Alliance & The Friends of Patterson Park present
The Big Baltimore Kite Fest!
We are incredibly excited for our FIRST Big Baltimore Kite Fest! This will be an acoustic (no motors, generators, or electronics) day in the park. The weather is looking beautiful and we hope you come out to celebrate the beauty of Patterson Park and the many different kite traditions in Baltimore!
Where should I park? Parking is available in the general neighborhood. The closest street to the festival is Patterson Park Ave.
Will kites be available for sale? There will be kite making occuring onsite for a suggested donation of $5. Commercial kites will be available for sale as well. Festival attendees are encouraged to bring their own kites to the festival
Will I be allowed to fly my drone? No! We are going for a motor-free day in the park. Unless it is wind powered, please leave your drone at home
Will the Pagoda be open? Yes! The Patterson Park Pagoda will be open (Thanks Friends to Patterson Park!)
Should I bring a picnic and picnic blanket? Yes!
Will food be available for sale? Yes!
Where are the food trucks? We love food trucks! But we did not invite any food trucks to this event. They can be loud and we want to fill the park with the sounds of laughter and fun and not engines and generators.
Where is the beer garden? Highlandtown, Patterson Park, Butchers Hill, Canton have some of the best bars in Baltimore. There won't be beer available for sale at this event but if you are thristy for a nice brew, please support our many neighborhood establishements.
What if it rains? It wont rain.
Are dogs allowed? We follow park rules which means keep your dog on a leash and remember there will be a ton of kids and kites wizzing overhead so well-behaved pups, please.
Will there be port-a-johns? Yes. Bathroom facilities will be located between the boat lake and Pagoda hill, along the promenade.
Should I bring my own kite? Yes!
What if my kite gets caught in a tree? Don't worry. We have a really long pole.
Where will the music performances occur? We have some amazing wind powered music going on during the course of the day. As this is an amplification-free event, keep your eyes peeled for pop up musical entertainment around the core of the festival site.
