MACkite is more than just a store. We're a part of the community, and we like to get out and bring the fun to you. (Especially when we can host an event at the beach!) Here's what we've got lined up for you...

30th Annual Great Lakes Kite Festival 2017
May 19 & 20, 2018
Has it already been 30 years?? Enjoy a day at the beach as the sky is filled with colorful kites of all types and sizes. World-famous stunt kite fliers perform to music on the center flying field while kites larger than a school bus hover just to the south. Bring your own kite to fly on the open flying field at the south end of the event. Shop an amazing selection of kites and wind toys and spinners in the giant MACkite tent on the beach, the world's largest kite store for the weekend. This festival is FREE to attend, though there may be a charge to park inside the State Park. (Out-of-state residents and those who have opted not to add a recreational pass to their license plate tabs will need to pay; those who do have a recreational plate tab will get in free.)
