– canceled – Spruce Knob Kite Festival
August 15 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Our 2020 festival has been canceled!
Due to the current spread of the COVID-19 virus, our responsibility to our local community, and restrictions put in place by the state of West Virginia we have had to cancel our 2020 Kite Festival.
Thanks to our sponsors Swilled Dog Hard Cider and Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company for their support.
Please contact us to find a time to visit our campus on your own, camp for a night or two, and bring your kite to fly on the high plains. Or simply take your family to fly kites at your local park — being outside is always good for the soul and the skies are always open for kites.

Join us at Spruce Knob Mountain Center to fly kites — bring a kite, make a kite, buy a kite, or just watch — and celebrate the sky and the wind that is a constant presence on our high plains! The New Era Kite Club will be on site flying their enormous fun kites, doing trick kite demos, and conducting kite-building workshops. Other fun wind-related activities and games will be available as well.
Kite flying will begin just after noon and continue through the afternoon.
All proceeds from this event will directly support our Mountain Stewards Summer Camp & camper scholarships.
