Festival of Kites & Kayaks

SATURDAY July 9, 2016  |  11 AM – 3 PM

Join us for a colorful and festive day at Socrates! Using recycled materials, children and their families draw inspiration from the park’s fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline to build expressive kites, and then fly them in the park. Teaching artists from Socrates and The Noguchi Museum will lead workshops for participants of all ages to produce and personalize handmade kites that explore ideas of flying, freedom, and community. And bring your cameras and sketchpads, too, because this year’s Festival of Kites will coincide with Manhattan Kayak Circumnavigation where hundreds of kayaks paddling up the East River will be our colorful backdrop to this already vibrant event.

Festival of Kites & Kayaks is presented in partnership:
