Streatham’s mini festival, Kite Day, will return to our beautiful Common on 2nd September 2018 from 11:00 to 17:00. The free event will be packed full of spectacular kite flying displays and is an opportunity for everyone to go fly a kite.

We will have another brilliant line-up of kite flyers this year who will dazzle and amaze with acrobatic displays or astound with their huge static kites.

But Kite Day is not just for the experts – the organisers encourage people to bring their own kites to fly. If you don’t own a kite, why not make one or buy one on site?

Fun for everyone

Kite Day is a wonderful family event. In between marvelling at the displays or kite flying, children can go on the bouncy castles or get their faces painted.

Dance on the Common to live music from The Rapture Riders, who will play between the displays. And if dancing is not for you, explore the community stalls to get a taste of the incredible groups and societies which help make Streatham so special.

Once again there will be an array of food and drink for you to enjoy, or you can have a picnic on the grass.

Mike Robinson, Chair of the Friends of Streatham Common, which organises Kite Day, is excited about the 2018 event:

“We’re looking forward to another fantastic free event in May – it will be our 20th annual Streatham Common Kite Day. The event is London’s only kite festival and attracts thousands from across London and beyond.


“Streatham Kite Day is made possible by a team of volunteers and any profits from the event are put back into restoring and maintaining the Common and its gardens. So not only will you have an amazing time at Kite Day but you’ll also be supporting a beautiful local landmark.”
