#FlyYourDreams at the 28th Cape Town Kite Festival Pop Up Fly

October 9, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Cape Town Kite Festival

You’re never too old to dream big, so let your dreams take to the sky, and fly a kite as high as you can this October in support of mental health awareness. Invest in your mental health – invest in our future at this year’s Cape Town Kite Festival.

Cape Mental Health’s annual flagship event is once again taking place on 9 October this year. This is to raise funds to enable this leading non-profit organisation to continue providing essential free mental healthcare services and interventions to those who are most in need. Their investment in children and youth, in particular, helps prevent mental illness that can progress into adulthood and limit the potential and dreams for the future of young people.

According to Dr Ingrid Daniels, CEO of Cape Mental Health and Immediate Past President of the World Federation for Mental Health, “failure to ensure that every child and adolescent has access to emotional support and mental health services will be a failure of our society to prevent this generation from being resilient adults with good mental health.”

Young, old, and everyone in-between is invited to view kites at Melkbosstrand beach in Cape Town on 9 October in support of World Mental Health Day (which takes place on 10 October 2022). Or, visit the Cape Town Kite Festival website for real-life and online activities such as community flies, their inclusive EduKite competition for learners from mainstream primary and special schools, interviews, activities for the little ones, their online store and more.

Join kiters all over the globe and fly your kite at the 28th Cape Town Kite Festival, anywhere and anytime during October 2022.

Share your photos, videos and messages of encouragement, tagging #FlyYourDreams and @CTKiteFest, and feature on the official CTKiteFest social feeds.

Access all CTKiteFest online content including a variety of online activities and interviews with their kiting friends from all over the world and find out why they fly in support of Cape Mental Health. Get inspired by the magic of soaring kites with activities for the little ones, and much more.

The 28th Cape Town Kite Festival promises to be an uplifting mix of magical, carefree fun. In South Africa, October is on the cusp of summer and an ideal time to get outdoors, fly a kite, enjoy a sense of play and freedom, and help raise awareness and funds for Cape Mental Health.
