Winter Kite Festival at Lake Harriet

Kites of all shapes, sizes, and colors will fill the sky over Lake Harriet, when the 20th Annual Winter Kite Festival returns on January 22. This free, family outdoor event held on the north end of the lake is organized by Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board in partnership with Linden Hills Neighborhood Council and East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association.

You can bring your own kite or buy one there. Check out the huge kites and high-flying talents of the Minnesota Kite Society. Enjoy music, ice-fishing lessons from Tips Outdoors and a free marshmallow roast sponsored by LHiNC. Assorted food trucks will be onsite.

Shuttle Service and Parking New this year, a FREE shuttle will run from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from the Calhoun Executive Lot (3033 Excelsior Blvd); masks required. Driving? The bandshell parking lot will be closed to vehicle traffic. Please expect delays on West Lake Harriet Parkway and allow ample time to find a spot and walk to the venue.
