Red Bull Flutag
September 7, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 30-foot high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder, or more often, plunging into the Mississippi River below. Flugtag, which means “flying day” in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium.
Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls and even a giant hamburger to grace the Red Bull Flugtag flight decks! Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1992, more than 150 Red Bull Flugtags have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a single event. Saint Paul last hosted in 2010.
On September 7th, Red Bull Flugtag makes its highly anticipated return to Saint Paul at Harriet Island Regional Park! Hundreds of teams apply for a coveted spot with only 50 of the highest quality teams being selected to participate.
Gates open at 10:30 with competition 1:00-5:00
