The event is held annually at the corner of Bollinger Canyon and Alcosta Boulevard in Central Park. The Art & Wind Festival's popularity has grown over the years and now boasts over 200 arts and craft booths, food courts, info alley, many children activities including kite making, and three entertainment stages all going at once. Many local youth groups performed on smaller stages including martial arts demonstrations, dance and tap, gymnastics and musical performances. Along with the event itself, there was also a Wind Breaker 5K Run, Walk & Skate on Monday. This year also marked a first with the arrival of a Coast Guard Air Rescue Helicopter on both days. There was a lot of kite flying including professional kite flyers demonstrating their skills choreographed to music.
