The 39th AKA Annual Convention will be held in Seaside, Oregon on Monday, October 3rd to Saturday, October 8th, 2016!

During this week, AKA will have flying exhibits open to viewing by the public including mass ascensions each day with 100 or more of the same style of kite and sport kite competitions with competitors flying their kites in intricate patterns or making them dance to music.  

Kite makers will bring their flying artwork to be judged for beauty in the air and the finer points of construction.  Battles will be held with large Rokkaku kites and smaller fighter kites and there will be indoor kite flying showing kites that fly without any wind at all.

One-of-a-kind flying art by builders from all over the USA, Europe, and Asia will be flying and competing for Grand Champion honors.  Miniature kites will be on display, some less than one inch in their longest dimension.  The largest kites in the sky may be up to 20 feet wide and 100 feet long.
