The Blossom Kite Festival, a long-standing DC tradition, is returning this year with both in-person and virtual options so that you can fly your kite on the Washington Monument grounds, in your favorite neighborhood park, or anywhere across the globe. Regardless of how you celebrate spring, join in by flying a kite during the last weekend in March!

Rediscover the joy of kite flying on the Washington Monument grounds! Bring your kite to the National Mall March 26-27, 2022, and join others kite enthusiasts in filling the sky with colorful kites.

If you’re looking for a place to fly your kite in the Washington, DC, area that isn’t on the National Mall, several parks will be hosting kite programming; you can find the list of participating parks here.
