Mile High Kite Festival

There is a little something for everyone in the Blue Ridge Mountains and nothing shows that better than the annual Mile High Kite Festival atop Beech Mountain. This festival was created for children of all ages to fly a kite at an altitude one mile above sea level. If you’ve never flown a kite on Beech Mountain North Carolina, then you’ve never really experienced flying a kite. Admission is free and free kites are handed out to the first 200 children under 12.

Located in the meadows besides Brick Oven Pizzeria, nothing compares to the soaring colors of the kites and the laughter from the children. The field is divided into two areas, one for demonstrations and exhibitions and one for the general public. Contests are held for the biggest, smallest, and best-decorated kites and all participates receive an official certificate from Beech Mountain mayor Rick Owen that reads: “I flew a kite a mile high at Beech Mountain.”
