    There's also a chance to meet the crazy jumpers who'll be waiting to take you on a wild ride... or maybe you'd like to try out a kite float?

    In 2024, the festival continues its commitment to protecting the planet, and we're counting on you!
    The Festival du cerf-volant et du vent is, by nature, sensitive to the environment. Located on the beach, a protected area where the wind is our friend, the commune of Châtelaillon-Plage is committed for the 3rd year to implementing the "eco-engaged event" standard.

    OUR COMMITMENTS
    - Concrete actions: 0 plastic cups, waste sorting, low-carbon footprint menus, upcycling decorations in partnership with La Matière, eco-responsible communication.
    - An event coordinator to carry out all actions
    - Awareness-raising and sharing with all those involved in the festival: organizers, festival-goers, partners and, of course, YOU!

    YOUR COMMITMENTS
    Take part in OUR eco-commitment! Don't leave your garbage at the event! Take it home and sort it responsibly!
