In spring 2014, Chapman Cultural Center launched a community-wide initiative called Spartanburg Soaring! to encourage creativity, promote healthy outdoor activity, and to build civic pride. Using kites as a common theme, Spartanburg Soaring! engaged cultural curiosity and promoted active play through activities and events all across the city. The kite festival takes place in and around the Chapman Cultural Center each spring when hundreds of colorful kites fill the skies above Spartanburg. Every year, the festival grows, so be sure to attend this year and make Spartanburg Soaring! International Kite Festival the highest-flying event yet!
The festival is free and open to all, including the many international kite flyers who have come from Europe, Asia, Canada, and across the United States to join the fun. Kites will be available for purchase or you can bring a kite from home.
Here’s what to expect at Spartanburg Soaring!:
Kids Zone! – The Kid Zone will feature various events scheduled throughout the day by some amazing Community Organizations.
Makers Market! – Another of Spartanburg’s great assets is its artists. The Makers Market will be set up where regional artisans will sell their wares–keeping 100% of their profits–so you can keep a piece of local culture even after you fly away. Everything will be affordable and locally handcrafted. Check out the full list of vendors: https://www.chapmanculturalcenter.org/spartanburg-soaring
Food Vendors! – Another reason to stop by Spartanburg Soaring! is all of the amazing food vendors who will be attending the festival!
Community Organizations! – What makes Spartanburg Soaring! so great? It’s the collaborative nature of the festival!
