The 2024 Summer season in Lincoln City kicks off with the return of the biannual Kite Festival.

The show, based at the D River Wayside beach, begins on Saturday June 22 and ends on June 23 and will run from 10a.m. until 4p.m. each day.

Because the show is so popular and visible form Hwy 101 traffic congestion will be thick.

Food will be available on site at Kristi’s Food Truck; owned by local Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. Kristi’s serves hot dogs, burgers, Indian tacos, and more.

The festival will also feature kid friendly activities organized by local charities. Included will be a free kite-making workshop, organized by Family Promise of Lincoln County and carnival style games courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City.

Free parking will be available at the Lincoln City Outlets and Lincoln City Community Center; a free shuttle service is available at both locations running continuously from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
