It is said that imagination is the highest kite one can fly, so this October Cape Mental Health invites you to join us as we celebrate the 27th Cape Town International Kite Festival. From 2 to 31 October, bold kites from all over the world will soar skywards to capture your imagination and show that #EveryoneDeservesToFly.
Cape Mental Health’s annual flagship event is going hybrid for its 27th edition as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Flying against the winds of adversity, this year’s interactive event combines real-life open-air kite-flying with online kite-making workshops, competitions and videos.
Join kiters all over the globe and fly your kite at the 27th Cape Town International Kite Festival, anywhere and anytime between 2 and 31 October. Share your photos, videos and messages of encouragement, tagging #EveryoneDeservesToFly and @CTKiteFest, and feature on the official CTKiteFest social feeds.
The goal is to raise over R100 000 to enable this hard-working non-profit organisation to provide essential free mental healthcare services and ensure that everyone, regardless of who they are or where they live, can enjoy equality in mental health access and care in an unequal world.
The 27th Cape Town International Kite Festival will be an uplifting mix of magic and fun. In South Africa, October is on the cusp of summer and an ideal time to get outdoors, fly a kite, laugh and enjoy a sense of play and freedom. Hold onto your kite-line and let go of anxiety, stress and ‒ most importantly ‒ help raise awareness and funds for Cape Mental Health, because #EveryoneDeservesToFly.
