The Jamaica International Kite Festival is a one of a kind event that has its nexus in the long-held tradition of Kite design, making and flying. The event was until 2010 staged at the Seville Great House but outgrew that venue. The festival has also drawn attention from international kiting organizations and is a part of the international calendar.
The American Kiting Association, Canadian Kiting Federation and the West Indian Kite Association have all attended and are impressed with what is being offered. The festival is rounded off with an international styled concert.
