International Kite Festival





Want to have your feet in the sand and your head in the clouds? The International Kite Festival or Les Rencontres Internationales de Cerfs-Volants (RICV) in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region is for you!

For over 25 years, the wide sandy beach of Berck-sur-Mer has been the ideal setting for this colourful event. In April each year, the young and young at heart delight in the magic of flying objects of all colours and shapes. 

To celebrate the arrival of spring, almost 700,000 visitors come to admire the new creations of the world's best kite makers.  The huge range of kites and large inflatables, each with its own originality, include cartoon characters, magical monsters, aerial fish, boats floating on the clouds, creative geometric shapes and much more. 

Some kites are spectacular for how they look - others for how they perform, but each one is a colourful masterpiece.

The crowds love watching these stunning creations fly overhead and marvel at their humour, creativity and aeronautical talents.  

This year the RICV takes place from Saturday 9th to Sunday 17th April 2016.
