Things to do Arvada: Kite Festival

Real Estate Agent with The DiGiorgio Group

Arvada kite festivalThe Arvada Kite Festival is something I look forward every year, but I missed it last year.  There's always so much going on around here!

There was not much wind to speak of for the 2009 Kite Festival, but right now the wind is blowing like crazy. So if it does that this Saturday, April 9, it will be a fantastic day for kites!

The 2011 Kite Festival will be held on Saturday, April 9 from 10 am to 4 pm (rain date is April 16), at Robby Ferrufino Park (74th & Carr).  

There are contests for highest kite, most visually appealing kite, smallest kite, and largest kite. There will be fancy kite flying, dancing to music or performing acrobatics.

Of course, there'll be jumping castle, face painting, lots of booths too.  And the Jeffco Brass Band will perform at noon.

For more info, click 9th Annual Kite Festival.

In the meantime, take a kite building class!

April 2, 2011-Majestic View Nature Center-11:00-12:00 and 1:00-2:00 / Call 720-898-7405

There will be a special time at the kite festival for these children to fly the kites they have made.


It's a beautiful sight, it's fun, and they have lots of good food too.  Bring a blanket or some chairs and hang out awhile. Better yet, bring a kite and get in on the fun.

The only problem is, this is the same day for the Colorado Tartan Day Festival. Will have to do both, somehow!

I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the ‘flavor’ of our community, in case they’re new or moving to the Denver area.

I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly suburbs northwest of Denver.

I'm sure the Arvada Kite Festival is a very colorful sight - and a great way to enjoy early spring in Colorado!

The wind we have been having should make for great kite flying.

Amen, Belinda!

Beth - you are right about that.

Sea to Sky - I don't know anyone who doesn't like kites.
