    Hermann Park Kite Festival

    Hermann Park Kite Festival

    In celebration of Hermann Park’s centennial, Hermann Park Conservancy is hosting the first annual Hermann Park Kite Festival. Everyone is invited to this free festival as kites in all shapes and sizes set sail in the spring sky on Miller Hill and around the Jones Reflection Pool. 

    In addition to kites, a feast of entertainment will delight festival-goers throughout the day:

    Stilt-walkers
    Puppeteers
    Magicians
    Jugglers
    Ribbon dancers
    Student performance groups
    And, more!

    Food will be available for purchase from food trucks the Waffle Bus, Custom Confections, and Tila's Tacos Truckeria!
    Die-hard kiters and recreational fans alike will enjoy the acrobatics of the South Houston Area Recreational Kiters. Known for their stunt flying skills, the S.H.A.R.K.s will lend their special brand of high-flying aerial ballet to the Hermann Park Kite Festival.
