Celebrate your loved ones and support others at this family-friendly event.
Ann Arbor’s first and only Kite Festival. Imagine the front lawn of Pioneer High School filled with kites of all shapes and sizes. Professional kite fliers entertaining the crowd with large kites dancing through the sky to music. Families building and decorating kites. Children and adults alike participating in “learn to fly” kite clinics. With support from our sponsors, GrieveWell is proud to offer a day to celebrate life, honor the memory of friends and family who have passed, and to be a part of the movement to build a community of hope and healing.
