    THE MUST-SEE EVENTS OF THE FESTIVAL :
    The XXL kites of course! And this year, it is a cloud of marine animals that will invade the sky.
    It is also the creative activities for children and the egg hunt so much awaited by the little ones on Sunday morning.
    But also the meeting with the crazy jumpers who are waiting for you for huge jumps... unless you let yourself be tempted by a kite float baptism.

    In 2022, the festival is committed and we count on you!

    The Kite and Wind Festival is, by nature, sensitive and touched by the environment.
    Located on the beach, a protected area where the wind is our friend, the town of Chatelaillon-Plage is committed to the implementation of the "eco-committed event".

    OUR COMMITMENTS
    - Concrete actions: 0 plastic cups, waste sorting, low carbon footprint menus, decoration of the spaces with upcycling in partnership with La Matière, an eco-responsible communication.
    - A referent on the event to carry out the actions
    - Awareness and sharing with all the actors of the festival: organizers, festival-goers, partners and of course YOU!

    YOUR COMMITMENTS
    Take part in OUR eco-commitment! Don't leave your waste at the event! Take them back home for a responsible waste sorting!

    AN EXCEPTIONAL SPONSOR, THE AQUARIUM OF LA ROCHELLE
    What better for a festival committed as the kite festival to associate with the largest private aquarium in Europe, that of La Rochelle. It has been working for years to protect our oceans and will make you aware of this through educational workshops fun and instructive on this new space!

    He will be at the ESPACE NATURE from Saturday to Sunday for 7 workshop-lectures at 10:30 am, 11:30 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm, 4 pm and 5 pm.
