Mission of Organization:

The Morro Bay Kite Festival is a annual community event focused on family and the art of kite flying. 

Our goal is to bring all individuals, families, and all generations together in a safe,  relaxing and fun environment, to learn and participate in the art of kite flying, Morro Bay style. Our breathtaking surroundings and windy location is perfect for this type of gathering on the central coast. 

Our hope when attending this high flying event, is that kids of all ages will not be distracted by technology for a moment and able to enjoy kite flying festivities, nature, the ocean. Perhaps, even Grandma and Grandpa can take a turn to fly a kite and enjoy some good old fashioned fun over the weekend...
