Every year the World Kite Museum hosts an auction during the week of the Washington State International Kite Festival. This is our primary fundraiser for the year and all the proceeds go to grow and improve the nation’s only kite museum, with one of the world’s largest collections of kites and kite related ephemera. This year we will be hosting an all-American good time for friends, fliers, and fans! The theme for this year’s auction is Red, Kite, and Blue so dress in your patriotic best or dress as your favorite kite! Prizes will be given for the best costume!
Join us for this evening of fabulous fun!

Asian New Year Celebration
Beginning February 9th & 10th 2013. Featuring the Meloy Collection of fine artifacts we will be celebrating the year of the snake in style! Come to the museum to see our wide collection of Chinese hand painted kites and artifacts and create some art of your own with your family. We will have a caligraphy table available where you can learn to write the Chinese characters for snake, and create your own unique symbol to represent your name, similar to the stamps used for identification in China for many years! Exhibit is included in regular admission. Runs through March 2013.
