Event Description: 

Francis Rogallo was a NASA scientists and inventor of the flexible wing. His inventions started the sport of hang gliding and his designs have carried over into the stunt kites, power kites, and hang gliders that are flown today. We invite you to join us and raise a kite at the 37th Annual Rogallo Kite Festival! To Francis Rogallo and his many accomplishments.

Kitty Hawk Kites and friends will be displaying amazing 30 - 100 ft kites on top of Jockey’s Ridge. Join us and fly a kite of your own, take part in free stunt kite lessons, and kitemaking for the kids. Check out the kite and toy room inside of our store for kite specials.
