Sydney Festival of the Winds 2010

July 9th, 2010



  • Sunday 12 September 2010, 11am-4pm

Australia’s largest and most exciting kite flying festival.

There’s so much to do and see at this year’s FESTIVAL OF THE WINDS, so if you’re up for a great day out, then the only place to be on Sunday, 12 September is down at Bondi Beach for Sydney’s most colourful, fun-filled, family-friendly festival.

As well as kite flying, visitors can enjoy:
A dynamic multicultural entertainment program with great music and dance. 
Free dance workshops including Belly Dance, Salsa and Samba, Jazz Funk/Hip Hop, Capoeria, African Dance and Tai Chi can be enjoyed by all while learning some new skills.
Children’s entertainment, including pony, carousel and mini ferris wheel rides, face painting, animal farm, wandering minstrels, jugglers, stilt walkers, puppeteers, clowns and craft workshops, puppet shows and more will be available throughout the day.
Multicultural food stalls with food and drink from all over the world will offer us the chance to try their scrumptious treats throughout the festival day.
Kite making workshops and kite stalls.
A spectacular, free of charge, aerial art exhibition will be held in the Bondi Pavilion Gallery between 2-27 September. Originally shown in 2009 in the Gallery of Modern Art Queensland as part of the Asia Pacific Triennial, artists Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan will reproduce an enormous suspended sculpture titled In-Flight (Project Another Country) for this year’s Festival of the Winds. The artists’ works use the process of collecting and collaborating to express ideas of migration, family and memory. In-Flight takes the shape of an aeroplane, constructed from hundreds of small handmade planes. This aggregation of tiny sculptures, created by children and adults from found objects and materials, will be added to during the course of the exhibition.
