Come fly with us! Kites Against Cancer Days. Events on May 16th, 22nd & June 13th!

Now in its 13th year, Kites Against Cancer Season was created by Anne-Marie Viviano, a former Exeter Hospital cancer patient who had a vision to fill the sky with kites as a sign of hope and support of other cancer patients and their loved ones. Anne-Marie also launched the Beyond the Rainbow Fund, which assists families with expenses and wellness therapies during cancer treatments.

Sunday, May 16th – Kites at the Beach (Hampton Beach) 

We’re so excited to go back to the beach this year for this special event, flying kites to honor and remember friends and family in their battles against cancer. Join us on Sunday, May 16th from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Kites will be flying on Hampton Beach (near the new Oceanfront Pavilion.)

Saturday, May 22nd – Kites Against Cancer Family Picnic
(The Wood Barn, Exeter)

Join us for the perfect afternoon of outdoor fun filled with a local food truck, live music, good fellowship and more – all in support of The Beyond the Rainbow Fund, helping Exeter Hospital cancer patients-in-need.

Bring a kite, or purchase one here for $10, or just hang back and enjoy the emotionally-charged folk rock sounds of The Reconstructed!

Southern Maine’s The Reconstructed has won critical acclaim, built a devoted fan base and become one of the Seacoast region’s top-drawing original acts with its electrifying live shows.

This event will be held in both The Word Barn Meadow, and across the street on the beautiful Raynes Farm conservation land – the ultimate spot for kite flying fun. Saturday, May 22, 2021, 1-3pm

Free for kids 10 & under – but registration required due to capacity limits!
