Franklin Park Kite and Bike Festival

Celebrating 50 years of wonder and play at Franklin Park!

Started in 1969, the Kite and Bike Festival is a Boston tradition that gathers more than 1,000 people at Franklin Park each May to enjoy picnicking, kite flying, bicycles, and music.

One resident describes the Kite and Bike Festival as, “My favorite day ever in the 20 years I’ve lived in Boston!” Picture endless blue skies dotted with colorful kites and children and families running and laughing across bright green fields. This event is not to be missed.

(Rain date: Sunday, May 19, from 1 - 5 p.m.)
