Colorful Feast of the Heavens

The Rømø Kite Festival, which takes place every year at the beginning of September, offers a spectacular sight of colorful kites dancing against the sky on Rømø's wide beaches. The 2024 festival marks 35 years of the joy and creativity of kite flying, where participants from all over the world gather to share their passion.

Activities for All

From free flying to competitions where participants' skills and creativity are challenged, the festival offers something for everyone. Guests can participate in guessing contests, toffee drafts and even watch teddy bears jump from dragon ferries. For the creative souls, there is an opportunity to win prizes for homemade kites, and when darkness falls, illuminated kites light up the night sky in a magical spectacle.

Practical information

The festival takes place on Lakolk beach where you can get around by car. This weekend with the Dragon Festival, the beach will be very busy and you should expect queues of up to 1 hour to get in and out of the beach.

We can encourage everyone to park outside the beach area and walk to the beach to avoid waiting in line.

Close to the beach is the Lakolk shopping center where you can park, eat, shop and find toilets.
