Kite Flight

Come and fly a kite!
Each Labor Day Weekend, a 200-acre prairie just a few miles down the road from Callaway is transformed into an amazing site with a dazzling array of kites of amazing colors in all shapes and sizes - have you ever seen an octopus fly? 

Professional kite fliers from around the country converge on Smith Field to fly some of the biggest kites around, and amateurs, families and kids are welcome to bring their own kites as well and join in the fun.  

Callaway Kite Flight is an amazing AKA (American Kitefliers Association)-sanctioned event that has hosted guests from at least 21 nations and 29 states since the event began in 1991.

Professional and amateur fliers decorate the skies over the breath-takingly beautiful Nebraska countryside. Children and adults enjoy the large and colorful kites flown by our professional kite fliers. You can bring your own kite or buy one at one of the on-site vendors.  Food and beverage vendors are also on hand for when you get hungry or need a treat.

Bring sunscreen and a chair or blanket to sit on. Please, NO smoking, fires, BBQs, fireworks or any other fire hazard materials allowed. We hope you can join us this year, are you coming to the Callaway Kite Flight?

Admission is only $5 for adults, $3 for children under 16 or $25 for the whole family. Buses from nearby nursing homes are admitted free. There is plenty of free parking.
