Lincoln City Kite Festival Seeks 2014 Theme
Lincoln City, OR â€“ Put your stamp on the Lincoln City Kite Festival this year!Â The Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau is seeking theme submissions for the 2014 kite festivals, which will be held in June and October of next year.
To encourage submissions, the VCB is running a contest through December 31, 2013.Â The entry with the winning submission will receive a Lincoln City prize package including a signature glass float, kite festival memorabilia and recognition at the 2014 Summer and Fall Kite Festivals.

There’s only one rule: The 2014 theme must begin with the letter “U.”Â Each year the Lincoln City Kite Festival theme has progressed through the letters of the alphabet.Â The theme from 2013 was “Tales of Tails,” honoring the life-size pod of gray whale kites that adorn the sky during the festivals, and 2012’s theme was “Stars and Stripes,” featuring red, white and blue kites of all shapes and sizes.
“We know there are some creative minds out there that can help us set the tone for the 2014 Lincoln City Kite Festivals,” said Scott Humpert, Public Relations Coordinator for the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau.Â “We look forward to reading all of the entries and know it will be a challenge to narrow it down to a single idea.”
There are two kite festivals held annually in Lincoln City; one in the summer and one in the fall.Â Kite fliers from across the Northwest and beyond gather at the D-River Wayside in Lincoln City for the kite festivals, a celebration of both professional and leisure kite fliers with some of the most colorful big â€œshow kitesâ€ in the world.
