IKF - 2020

on 13th, 14th & 15th of January

Kite flying is a means of fun and entertainment and it also reflects our culture and traditions that has been carried forward since generations. Kite Festival 2020 is being organized by Telangana Tourism with great fanfare in January, 2020. The success of Kite Fest organized in the years 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 has brought a new identity to the tradition of Kite flying. Now, Hyderabad is all set to host Kites Festival 2020, with enthusiastic participation from scores of national and international flying clubs.

The International Kite Festival will take place in Hyderabad, accommodating visitors from many international destinations. The festival celebrations will reflect a rich tapestry of culture, kites and craft that Hyderabad is known for. Bringing together international teams of professional kite-flyers, along with thousands of kite-enthusiasts from around the city, the festival aims to educate and entertain through a series of kite-making workshops, kite-flying lessons, and kite-fighting competitions against the backdrop of a regional food fair, and arts and crafts mela. Kites fill the skies of Hyderabad with high flying colours during the Kite festival which is one of the popular events organized in the month of January. The surprising element of Kites Festival 2020 is night-time Kite flying.

The festival being organized in 2020 will be completely eco-friendly with no plastic or manjas.
