The 2022 Emu Park Lions & Triple M Festival of the Wind and the FOW markets was an outstanding success.
The wind mostly eluded us on the day but still there was the hugest crowd we have ever seen. Lots of fun and the day was great. Thank you for coming and making all our weeks of hard work preparing worthwhile.
Festival of the Wind at Emu Park
The Emu Park Lions and Triple M Festival of the Wind is one of the most popular family kite festivals in Australia. It is held when the winds are favourable and the large tides with the full moon lay bare, large stretches of sand, allowing room for both kite flying and beach activities. The Festival began in 1999 and now attracts internationally known kite designers from Tasmania, New South Wales, and Queensland. These professional kite flyers are supported by enthusiastic members of Kites Queensland from Brisbane and Hervey Bay.
Literally hundreds of colourful kites of all shapes and sizes launched from Fisherman’s Beach fill the sky to provide a thrilling spectacle, parents and grandparents transported back to memories of their childhood flying kites when technology was simpler.
Although the Queensland Government has lifted Covid-19 restrictions on outdoor events, festival organisers are still mindful that Covid-19 is still within our community, and as such, are asking that patrons take every precaution not to put themselves or others at risk.
Sanitiser stations will be placed throughout the event site for patrons use;
Where possible, maintain social distancing; and
Most importantly, please stay at home and do not attend if you have Covid-19 symptoms (eg cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue, or shortness of breath), or have been in close contact with someone with Covid-19.
