Bali Kite Festival

The Bali Kite Festival is an annual festival held on the island from July to October. The event highlights Bali’s unique culture, drawing thousands of visitors annually.

The timing of the kite festival in July and August is key, as this marks the start of the windy season in Bali. In addition, both months are peak seasons for tourists, so attendance is full, making it a fun and interactive festival.

Bali Kite Festival near Padanggalak & Sanur 2023 Dates & Times

If you would like to enjoy kite-flying, and interacting with the locals and the sun and sea, then go to Padanggalak. Padanggalak is a coastal region north of the tourist town of Sanur.

It may be a little hard for those who would like to plan, as the dates are scheduled per current weather conditions. Therefore, it is best to have a general idea of the dates and then check with your hotel when you arrive to see if they know the confirmed dates.

Once the dates are set, locals gather to compete with foreigners in kite flying. If you head down to the beach to watch or participate, you will see a sky filled with kites of all shapes, sizes and colours soaring above the crowded beaches.

History has it that the festival started as a colourful fanfare to thank the gods for bountiful harvests and fertility but has since grown to become one of the most remarkable events on Bali’s event calendar. Prizes are given to the most distinct and creative kites. If you love kites and are a fan of the outdoors, then the Bali Kite Festival is perfect.
