Fuerteventura International Kite Festival 2019

In 2019 the International Kite Festival in Fuerteventura will celebrate its 32nd 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 2019: 7 - 10 November 2019

Location: the dunes inside Corralejo Natural Park

The event is aimed to attract both amateurs and professional kite pilots, so if you are passionate about kite flying this is the place to be.

Also, if you happen to be on holiday in Corralejo at that time (or anywhere else on the island for that matter) it is worth it to come and see the amazing kites flying over the sand dunes, with the Lobos Island and the turquoise water in the backdrop.

In the last years the Kite Festival in Corralejo - Fuerteventura has attracted a lot of attention from the Spanish press and international as well, so participants gather from numerous countries to take part in this colourful event.
