Event Description

Springtime in New Mexico brings wind and sunny skies, creating perfect conditions for the 13th Annual Wind Festival held at Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood.  Join us for this year's Festival on Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4, each day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.   

The skies will be filled with colorful kites of all shapes and sizes throughout the weekend.  Visitors can bring their own kite, buy one at the Festival, or watch professional stunt kite fliers maneuver kites expertly in the wind.  Visitors can participate in kite flying contests or just fly their kites for fun on large grass fields.

Members of the American Kiter's Association will bring custom made, one-of-a-kind kites that are big and exciting to watch. Kites will be flown in series and arc across the sky like floating freight trains, while dozens of imaginative individual kite shapes rise and fall with the wind gusts.

This year the Festival will also feature sustainable living displays, solar oven demonstrations and water harvesting tours. A spectacular free-flight raptor show will be presented by world-renowned falconer Tom Smylie at 2 p.m. each day if weather permits.   Food and drinks will be available from vendors. 

Admission to the festival is FREE.  

Visitors are also invited to go into Wildlife West Nature Park and Zoo to experience and get up close to the 25 species of native New Mexico wildlife including black bear, cougars, endangered Mexican wolves, pronghorn, Crested Caracaras, raptors and more.  Come see our newest arrival −15 Prairie Dogs that Wildlife West just received from the Tulsa Oklahoma Zoo.  Admission to Wildlife West is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $4 for students.  Children under five are free.
