Brisbane Kite Festival is Back at the Murarrie Recreation Reserve!

Editor’s Note: Event has been moved to Sunday, Aug 21, 10am-3pm.

Bring out the kid in you at the Brisbane Kite Festival, which returns for another fun-filled day at the Murarrie Recreation Reserve in Cannon Hill! 

The whole family is guaranteed to enjoy the event filled with kite flying and a whole lot of activities on Sunday, 15 May 2022, from 8:00 a.m. onwards.

Participants may bring their own kites or buy one that can be easily put together at the festival. There will be seasoned kite-flyers to assist the locals. Kites that may break will be repaired in the workshop area.

Children will delight in the jumping castles, face painting, heaps of rides, and of course, kite flying! Vendors will be available all day to serve hot food like burgers or sausage sizzles and refreshing drinks.

Among the food stalls to anticipate are:

London Spud – a local favorite. Their baked spuds are filled with only the best quality meats and freshest ingredients. These amazing meals are completely gluten-free and are the perfect comfort food. 

Salt Flake – a gluten-free food truck serving the best fish & chips. 

Lankan Street – brings the authentic flavours of Sri Lanka with their famous grilled Kottu Roti. 

New York Waffles – for the sweet and savoury dessert lovers. Try a light and crispy Brussels waffle topped with southern fried chicken, apple slaw, sriracha mayo and maple syrup. The ultimate combo of sweet and savoury.

The Brisbane Kite Festival is an annual event organised by the Rotary Club of Balmoral and Rotary Club of Carindale. Carina’s Men’s Shed helps out with the kite assembly and repair. The event is also made possible with the help of Kites Queensland and Brisbane City Council. 

Pets may be allowed at the Murarrie Recreation Reserve but should be leashed at all times. Council by-laws about pets in the area remain. 

The day will go ahead unless otherwise publicised if the weather changes. Follow updates on their Facebook page.

Fly Kites this Weekend at the Brisbane Kite Festival in Cannon Hill

Flying a kite is a typical childhood pastime in Australia, yet when people grow older, we tend to forget how much fun it can be. Bring back the old times and join the Brisbane Kite Festival in Cannon Hill this weekend.

The event will be staged at the Murarrie Recreation Ground on Wynnum Road on Sunday, 28 April 2019 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

You are free to bring your own kite or purchase one from the festival. There is a designated area where you can fly your kites alongside professional kite flyers.

There are a lot of activities to do aside from making and flying kites. Your family, especially the kids would surely have loads of fun face painting, jumping castles, and feasting on sausage sizzle.

Everyone is welcome to join this free event sponsored by the Brisbane City Council and organised by the Rotary Clubs of Balmoral, Carindale and the Port of Brisbane. There will also be special assistance from the Phoenix Kite Collective.

Pets are allowed but they must be supervised and on leash at all times. Free car parking on site is available and the closest train station is Murarrie on the Cleveland Line.

Whilst it’s a free entry event, the festival accepts gold coin donations, which will all be used for local and international community projects of the Rotary Clubs of Port of Brisbane, Carindale, and Balmoral.
