People all over the world will be flying their kites at the Hybrid 27th Cape Town International Kite Festival between 2 and 31 October.
The Cape Town International Kite Festival is the oldest kiting event in Africa and has been proudly hosted by Cape Mental Health since 1994, to raise funds and promote mental wellness. It is traditionally one of the biggest kite festivals on the African continent and attracts professional kiters from around the world who fund their way to Cape Town in support of Cape Mental Health (unlike other international festivals where the kiters’ travel is usually sponsored by the organisers).
For the 27th edition of the event, Cape Mental Health invites you to view kites at Dolphin Beach on Sunday 10 October (World Mental Health Day), and at Zandvlei Nature Reserve on Saturday 23 October 2021. Gather family, friends or colleagues, wear green and plan a ‘flash fly’ to enjoy time together in the fresh air at a safe, social distance while giving hope and raising funds for Cape Mental Health.
The goal is to raise over R100 000,00 to enable this hard-working non-profit organisation to continue providing essential free mental healthcare services and ensuring that everyone, regardless of who they are or where they live, can enjoy equality in mental health access and care in an unequal world.
Let the organisers know when and where you will be flying if you’d like them to share your pop-up on social media. Contact @CTKiteFest on social media or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to share your photos, videos and messages of hope on social media, tagging #EveryoneDeservesToFly and @CTKiteFest to feature on the official CTKiteFest social feeds.
