The Humboldt Kiters will be hosting the Redwood Coast Kite Festival in Eureka, California this weekend. The festival will feature extensive kiting over four flying fields along beautiful Humboldt Bay, plus an artisan’s fair and live music. The event is free and open to the public. Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Halvorsen Park, 1003-1057 Waterfront Drive, Eureka, California. 

The four flying fields are categorized as Fun, Demo & Events, Giants, and Sport Kiting. Everyone is welcome to participate, and there will be free kites available for children. No experience necessary! Kiters will be on hand to teach anyone to fly a kite, even if they’ve never done it before.

This is a revived event, one which started in Humboldt County in 1992. It moved to Brookings, Oregon and was celebrated annually until 2018. After Covid, the festival was not scheduled to return in Brookings, so the Humboldt Kiters club decided to relaunch this special event in Eureka. 

The 2022 Redwood Coast Kite Festival will place Humboldt on the map as an important missing link in the chain of West Coast kite festivals. The nearest southern festival is hosted in Berkeley, CA. The nearest northern festival is hosted in Lincoln City, Oregon. Professional kite flyers and kite festival enthusiasts follow this line of festivals up and down the West Coast each year.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know
