Olympic Day, held annually on June 23, is celebrated by millions of people in more than 160 countries. Olympic Day commemorates the birth of the modern Olympic Games in 1894.  The worldwide celebration aims to promote fitness, well-being, culture and education, while also observing the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect.  The Olympic Day pillars – move, learn and discover – are promoted in every corner of the globe.

From June 1 - June 30, communities across the United States will celebrate Olympic Day 2018 through events, educational programming and other activities. 

The U.S. Olympic Committee has developed a turnkey program to assist communities across the nation in celebrating Olympic Day. The USOC will work with your organization to help execute an Olympic Day celebration.  U.S. Olympians and Paralympians are also invited to participate in Olympic Day by attending events to share their experiences and the role that the Olympic ideals have played in their lives.  If you are an athlete looking for an event near you or if you are a community organization wishing to host an Olympic Day event, please register here: Olympic Day 2018 Registration
