Why You Need to Attend Cayman Kitefest at Kaibo
Celebrate Cayman Kitefest on Easter Monday April 13th 1pm -5pm
For one day out of the year, the entire sky above Kaibo Beach is filled with color. Brilliant shades of the rainbow fly through the sky during the Kaibo Kitefest. If you’re lucky enough to be in Grand Cayman during Easter, make sure you make it over to Cayman Kai for Cayman Kitefest at Kaibo.
Cayman Kitefest at Kaibo is a Caymanian Celebration!
Cayman Kitefest at Kaibo is one of the many ways the islands celebrate their unique culture. This custom goes back many years as a way to welcome summer into the Caribbean. During the spring, wind is more suitable for kite-flying. As homage to this tradition, locals and visitors gather on Kaibo Beach to fly their kites for both fun and a chance to win prizes.
All proceeds from competition entry and kite sales will be used to support local charity One Dog at a Time, (ODAAT) Rescuing and Rehoming Cayman’s Dogs and Pups, 365 days of the year.
It’s easy to get to Kaibo at Rum Point
On the day of the Cayman Kitefest at Kaibo, a ferry is docked at Camana Bay waiting for visitors to come to Rum Point. The ferry usually leaves at 12 noon, but make sure to check the exact time and fees with Cayman Ferries. There is no admission to go to this festival, but there is a $10 donation to ODAAT if you would like to participate in the contest!
