Participants from all over Europe will participate in the Rijsbergen Kite Festival, we have participants from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, France, England. Denmark, India, Malaysia and Switzerland. Among the participants are champions, former champions and winners of many different kite festivals. We have a demonstration field where explanation is given about the different kite sports.

Saturday and Sunday, from 10.00 - 17.00 hrs a lot is happening on the kite fields at the Tiggeltsestraat 13 in Rijsbergen. Saturday from 20.00 - 00.00 hours there is a spectacular nightflight. All kites are then illuminated in the air, even on the fields are illuminated kites to be found. The nightflight is opened by the alderman  of the Town council, he gives the starting signal for the lantern parade for the children (last year, 240 children took part). There is also a show of Feniks Taiko (japanese drums) and the Vrije Zwaaiers from St Lenaarts (belgium)
