The second edition of Visit Qatar Kite Festival will be held from the January 25 to February 3 at Old Doha Port. Visitors will enjoy a spectacular display of giant kites flown by some 60 participants from around the world. The festival is being organised with the support of Qatar Tourism as strategic partner and Old Doha Port as venue partner.

Safe Flight Solutions, the organiser of the popular Qatar Balloon Festival series, and asfary.com, its online platform for booking local activities and adventures, are bringing back this exciting event that had its debut in March 2023 and was warmly welcomed by the Doha community.

This edition’s venue is Old Doha Port that was selected for its rich historical context, modern amenities, and a stunning backdrop of the West Bay skyline, encapsulating the essence of Doha’s heritage and its modern-day allure. As the event is taking place in front of the cruise terminal, Visit Qatar Kite Festival will be an extra attraction to the international passengers of ocean liners during the busy cruise season.

The festival will take place over ten days and feature multiple activities for children and families, such as flying displays of huge colourful kites, inflatables games area by Celebration Palace, food court with international cuisines and free-of-charge kite building workshops led by Iqbal Husain, a seasoned kite-flying professional who recently participated in the 4th edition of Qatar Balloon Festival. Children will learn how to use eco-friendly biodegradable materials to draw, build, and paint their own kites, and then launch them into the air and fly them like pros.

Registration for kite-building workshops will be soon open on vqkf.com and is free of charge, however seats are limited. Follow the festival’s social media to stay updated.
