Francis Rogallo was a NASA scientist and the inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the development of the stunt kites, power kites, and hang gliders we fly today. We invite you to join us to fly a kite at the 40th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival to celebrate Francis Rogallo and his many accomplishments.
The 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 display 30- to 100-foot kites on top of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. Join us and fly a kite of your own, take part in FREE stunt kite lessons, kite coloring for the kids, or just sit back, relax, and enjoy the spectacular kite show!
