Brought back by popular demand is the fabulous jet ski Kite Team: Kiteman Productions from Orlando, Florida. If you were unable to attend last year this is one spectacle you should try to see. They are amazing! Also, on the main flying field, Utah Kite Fliers will demonstrate expert flying with their multiple stunt kites both on Friday night under the lights and on Saturday (wind-permitting) all day; the most popular feature of the Wind Fest was the Childrens Kite Making Workshop which will be in full swing this year. Also, we will again feature the Kite Garden display called Aerial Art by local kite creator Scott Hampton. On Saturday at high noon, you can witness the Parade of Flight Small Aircraft fly-over to honor the 1st Anniversary of the Wind Turbines.
The Wind Fest also features the popular Energy Expo. Vendors, businesses, and Entrepreneurs from the surrounding area will feature “green” products and practices. This Expo is unique in that you can actually test drive a Segway or a Klune Chariot, or an Electric Gem Car.

Ninth Annual WabiSabi Fashion Show Started as a small community fundraiser, the show has become an annual must see event in Moab, UT a town known for its extreme recreation. The fashion show brings out the extreme in winter entertainment, which this year promises to be more extravagant and eclectic than ever.
Each year artists and designers create outrageous theme based-fashion lines that are auctioned off as a fundraiser for Moab’s nonprofit organizations. Fashion designers whose intricate outfits are crafted by hand and only from recycled materials have sold for more than $600. Outfits from previous shows have included gladiators costumed in a kaleidoscope armor made from aluminum cans, dresses glittering with patterns made from smashed mirrors, and a “fur coat” made entirely from kids’ stuffed animals. This year’s fashion show theme is “Intergalactic” with each designer creating out of this world wearable art.
Absorb the amazing Moab winter culture at the biggest party of the year in Southeastern UT. Raise money for self-sufficient community programs and promoting the recycle, reuse and restyle mission of Wabi-Sabi thrift stores.
