Sugar Land Memorial Park

Event Information
Up, Up and Away! Vibrant kites will once again accent the big Texas sky at the eight annual Cultural Kite Festival. Activities and entertainment will include kite competitions for all ages, cultural performances and more! Throughout the event children will be able to create their own kites at the kite-making workshop! Kite flying is a popular activity and sport in many countries around the world, and it has proved to be a major hit in Sugar Land as our City represents a mixture of cultures and diversity

Activities and Entertainment
Don't have a kite? Don't worry! A kite-making workshop will be onsite for children to build and design their own kite. Kids can even take home their own kites as a souvenir. There will be plenty of space for free flying kite lovers or those who prefer to stroll around and just enjoy the magnificent view and entertainment.

Other entertainment includes walk-around characters such as Ben Franklin, who will provide stories on the history of kite flying and its connection to the discovery of electricity.  Cirque style stilt walkers will amaze you with their stimulating costumes.  Face painting and henna tattoos will also be available for children who want to partake in the festivities.

The main stage will come to life with cultural performances from local area groups. The DJ will host children’s activities during intermissions, allowing kids to learn a cultural dance from a professional or engage with other kids in carnival-themed games.

This year, we will introduce some new activities including a Chalk Art Contest in collaboration with the City of Sugar Land’s Cultural Arts team! Come experience this “outdoor gallery” in the pavilion! Don’t forget to play in our Jenga Zone or to climb the rock wall tower!
