This culture of flying kites was brought in India by Persians, now celebrated irrespective of the caste or creed. 'Uttarayana' (Uttar: North, Ayana: Movement, movement of the sun towards the north) is celebrated on 14 January of each year during the Makar Sankranti and continues until 15 January. This date marks the end of winter and the return of a more clement weather for farmers of Gujarat. The International Kite Festival 2018 has begun in Ahmedabad and the sky is filled with a splash of colors. Gearing up for the festival, enthusiastic participants fly kites of various shapes and sizes. The festival that is held annually, begun on January 7, 2018, and will go on until January 14 on the Sabarmati riverfront.

The main kite festival usually happens on the 10th and 11th in the month of January each year. But what you should keep in mind is that there is a parallel exhibition that takes places for more time. Although you won't be able to see as many kites as on the actual festival, you could check it out. If youare planning to visit Ahmedabad on the 14th, then will be able to witness kites throughout the city.
