The Rogallo Kite Festival features 2 days of kite flying in honor of Francis Rogallo, NASA scientist and inventor of the flexible wing. As a brilliant aeronautical engineer, his inventions launched the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the modern stunt kites, power kites and hang gliders that are flown today.
The 36th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival will be held at Jockey’s Ridge State Park and Jockey’s Ridge Crossing and is free to the public. Kitty Hawk Kites and friends will be displaying some amazing, up to 100 foot, kites on top of Jockey’s Ridge State Park.
Come fly a kite of your own, take part in free stunt kite lessons, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular kites in the sky. This year, kite flyers can also take part in the Revolution Kite Competition.
