Regional Kite Festival Powered by Flight Night logo

Event Cancelled
In order to ensure the health and safety of our community during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have cancelled the Regional Kite Festival #PoweredbyFlightNight. Thank you for your understanding as we strive to provide broad, deep, and innovative STEM pathways for all students during this time.

TRSA is proud to present the 2020 Regional Kite Festival Powered by Flight Night.

This event uses kites as a means to engage upper elementary students in STEM and physical activity while fostering creativity in history, the arts and aviation. Students across the region will watch their ingenuity fly as they come together for a day of creative STEM. Participating cities include Dallas, Wichita, Baton Rouge and Oklahoma City. 

Oklahoma educators can apply for a set of kites for their classrooms.
