The Bali Kite Festival is an annual event. And it takes place during the windiest months of the year. But the dates vary because they depend on weather conditions. Basically, it gets underway when the winds start to blow. And it ends when the winds die down.

Usually, the festival kicks off in July and concludes in October. But July and August are when it is at its peak. Because that is also one of Bali’s peak tourist seasons. And most of the action is at the beach.
