In 2022, the International Kite Festival in Fuerteventura will celebrate its 35th edition since it first launched in 1987. The event has started more than 30 years ago and it was simply a gathering put together by people who were passionate about kite flying and since then it has grown with each edition, into the internationally recognized event that it is now.

Fuerteventura International Kite Festival 2022: 7 - 13 November 2022

  • Location: Playa Bajo Negro, near Hotel Riu Oliva Beach hotel (inside Corralejo Natural Park)
  • Dates: In 2022 the Kite Festival in Corralejo (Fuerteventura) will be celebrated between November 7 and November 13.

Although the previous editions usually took place on El Dormidero Beach for most of the days of the event, this year the festival will move to the vicinity of the Oliva Beach hotel, on the sands of Bajo Negro beach.

According to current planning, the beach area immediately following the Hotel Riu Oliva Beach is expected to serve as the main location of the organizational tents of the event, as well as for the workshops, activities and other necessary services for the participants in the kite festival. The proximity of this space to an urban area allows the facilitation of services, generating the minimum environmental impact.

So this means that in 2022, Bajo Negro beach will serve as the esplanade for professional and amateur kite enthusiasts who are coming from all corners of Spain, as well as from all over Europe and from various foreign countries to enjoy Corralejo Kite Festival.

Corralejo Kite Festival is an international festival that already has a base of loyal fans and the event has gained enough international recognition to be considered among the most acclaimed kite festivals of its type in the world.
