The Minnesota Kite Society is dedicated to the promotion of kite flying throughout the State of Minnesota. The Minnesota Kite Society (MKS) is non-profit, non-discriminatory, all volunteer, and dedicated to widening the base of kite flying by providing information, assistance, and direction to interested parties.

MKS puts on kite flying events and kite building workshops helping to bring people into kiting. Kite flys are open to the public. All are welcome.

Flying kites has changed over the years. It's a great family activity. There are many kinds of kites, something for everyone.  The traditional single line kites, fancy show kites, duel-line and quad-line sport kites, fighters, traction/power kites. Kites can range from a couple dollars at the department store to several thousand dollars for the giant show kites.
