TRINITY RIVER KITE FESTIVAL

OCTOBER 13, 2018 - 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The first day of Fall will bring rain and storms to North Texas, so we changed the date from September 22 to October 13. 

It's all the same fun and action scheduled on the new date at the Trinity River Kite Festival. The festival grounds are near the Trinity River in the Dallas Floodway, a beautiful natural space in the heart of the City. Mark your calendar to attend this exciting event produced by the City of Dallas and the Trinity Commons Foundation.
