Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival | Kids Out and About Minneapolis/St. Paul

Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival

After taking a pandemic pause we are excited to return to frozen Lake Harriet in 2022 with lots of great winter activities and a partnership with the Art Shanty Projects. The Kite Festival is a beautiful festival that fills the sky with colorful kites, offers winter activities for all, delicious local food trucks and FREE s’mores by the fire to warm up throughout the day.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

We have a commitment to prioritize public health in our planning process and therefore we will not have the heated tent of past festivals, Art Shanty Projects will be offering an EXTERIOR-ONLY EXPERIENCE and all event attendees are encourage to wear masks.  The Lake Harriet Parking lot will be closed to vehicle traffic to allow more space for event attendees to social distance while enjoying food trucks, games and fun activities.  To avoid traffic please consider taking the shuttle from the Calhoun Executive Center (3033 Excelsior Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55416), masks will be required for all shuttle users.
