Clockshop’s 4th Annual ‘Community & Unity People’s Kite Festival’

Clockshop’s 4th Annual ‘Community & Unity People’s Kite Festival’

Join Clockshop for their 4th Annual Community & Unity People’s Kite Festival. This year’s festival will celebrate multicultural kite traditions at Los Angeles State Historic Park on Saturday, May 11, 2024 from 2:00–6:00 PM. As part of our inaugural kite commission program, our 2024 artist, Stevie Choi, will be creating three unique Korean kites to bring awareness to animal species native to Los Angeles whose continued existence is threatened by urban and industrial development such as the North American cougar, El Segundo butterfly, and the Least Bell’s vireo. For the first time, a kite competition will take place, inviting attendees to compete for the best handmade kite, judged by kite masters.

This all-ages, family-friendly cultural festival brings together diverse communities in Los Angeles through the art of kites and a day of joyful connection in this important public green space. Clockshop invites attendees to participate in free arts workshops, enjoy live music, and meet local community organizations to learn about their work in the nearby neighborhoods. The Kite Festival is designed as a celebration to honor the communities surrounding Los Angeles State Historic Park that fought for and steward this public parkland, recognizing their resilience, cultural histories, and aspirations.

Clockshop encourages attendees to make their own kites or visit the ‘eco-friendly kite options’ section here for suggestions on where to purchase or make kites ahead of the event. In an effort to limit plastic waste, a kite vendor will not be present at the event and instead, we will provide a very limited number of donation based ready-to-assemble kites on a first-come, first-served basis.

This event is free and open to the public. Clockshop suggests a $5 donation
