Southern Oregon Kite Festival
Since 1993, the Southern Oregon Kite Festival (SOKF) has been one of the premier kite festivals in the United States, bringing some of the most well known kite fliers and kite makers to perform and display their creations for locals and tourists alike… This invitational event originated as the dream of kite hobbyist Steve O’Brien and as the creation of Larry and Lynn Goodman, former owners of KCRE radio station in Crescent City, California. Beginning in 2001 the Port of Brookings Harbor assumed sponsorship of the festival. In 2006 the kite festival became a non-profit organization managed by a dedicated group of community volunteers.
Local vendors and artists set up their booths to provide great eats, treats, knick knacks and crafts… Located on the southern Oregon coast, Brookings also offers uncharacteristically good weather for the state, scenic rivers and forests, as well as a wealth of outdoor activities for families and individuals alike.
