ABC Kite Fest Soars into Zilker Park on April 3


The ABC Kite Fest, one of Austin's most iconic traditions, today announced the event will return to Zilker Park on April 3, 2022, for its 93rd year. Sponsored in part by KXAN, Texas Mutual and Austin Subaru, the festival invites kite flyers, families and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to witness thousands of bright kites fill the Austin skyline. The ABC Kite Fest will offer local food and drinks, a kite showcase and community kite contest, a children's concert, pet zone and more.

"The ABC Kite Fest is one of Austin's favorite events and we are delighted the tradition is returning home to Zilker Park," said Bobby Jenkins, CEO and owner of ABC Home & Commercial Services. "The festival's mission of fostering childhood creativity is what makes it a unique and true family affair. We welcome Austinites to experience the joy of sailing a kite through the sky, trying delicious food, watching your kids dance at our children's concert and spending a beautiful day with loved ones in the great outdoors."

Founded in 1929 by The Exchange Club of Austin, the ABC Kite Fest is now the largest and longest-running festival of its kind, underwritten by ABC Home & Commercial Services and produced by the Friends of the ABC Kite Fest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
