One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Hi, folks,  FYI
When I was checking out kite festivals in our region I came across this list of kiting events around the country https://www.everfest.com/unique/kite-festivals that I thought was attractive and easy to read.

Does anyone know where there is a more comprehensive and up to date list of kite events? Maybe on facebook or someplace?

Thank you for the good lists.  I'll have to take some time to go through all of them.

One would think AKA would have a comprehensive list of kite events (not just their own).  Maybe they do have one and I just can't find it.....

Honestly there are a lot of kite flyers who are not AKA members and if someone local asked them to run a small festival the is no reason AKA would be involved.  There are lots of them out there that range from 4 flyers up to hundreds.... And you can always start your own kite gathering

Some years I add items from the AKA list to my own.  For people just joining the thread, here's the AKA list:

In addition, the Wisconsin Kiters maintain lists of public festivals and club fly events on facebook, and I know Hoosier Kite Society has a calendar as well that I sometimes reference to add events to the IKE calendar.
