Annual Kite Festival at Gunston Hall
On Saturday, April 18 Gunston Hall welcomes visitors to celebrate the arrival of spring. Come make or buy a kite and fly it on our meadow from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This family program is a great opportunity to get outdoors. Admission includes a variety of kite-related craft activities, a space to fly, and tours of the historic Mansion.
Kite flying was a fantastic part of childhood in the 18th century. Make a modern kite and experiment with how well it flies. Chat with historic characters about their kite flying experience and examine 18th-century style kites. This casual program is great for a day-long experience at Gunston Hall. Food and drink will be available for purchase, or pack a picnic of your own.
Tickets are available at the door and are $10 for adults, $8 for kids 6-18. Members of Gunston Hall receive a 50% discount on admission for this program. It will take place rain or shine.
