5th Annual Otis Kite Festival

Come fly a kite!

Bring your family and friends to make and fly kites down at the Santa Monica Pier. Everyone will receive his or her own free, unique kite along with a color theory instruction lesson. Kite makers from across the United States will also showcase their work and create a "gallery in the sky."

A workshop for kids focusing on the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) principles involved in kite-making will blend learning about the physics of flight, wind and climate, and sustainable materials with color theory, art, and design.

In addition to educational workshops, each attendee will be able to create their own kite using a provided kit and basic design instruction.
