Meeting point
The main Kite field here at Dunstable Downs
What to bring and wear
Dress for the weather and remember that there is normally a little more of a breeze up here at Dunstable Downs.
The main event is held on our Kite field, on grass. We try and keep it as accessible as possible. You are able to view the display from the Centre courtyard. BB Free parking
The Kite Festival is always busy and so we do advise to arrive early especially if the weather is sunny. Parking is limited. If you are arriving on Saturday there is a local bus from the town center. This is a Pay and Display car park and so parking fees apply although entry to the event is free. Stall Booking -
