The California State Games is the largest Olympic-style sports festival in the state with 24+ sports from Archery to Softball at venues all across San Diego County.
The California State Games is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and the largest amateur sports festival in the state. As a community-based member of the United States Olympic Committee, we have hosted our Olympic-style event since 1988. Our mission is to promote and nurture the health, education, and competitive spirit of residents of California by managing a quality amateur sports event that encourages participation and provides an Olympic experience.
Athletes from all over California compete for gold, silver and bronze medals in dozens of sports awarded in a medal ceremony. They also are a part of our annual Opening Ceremonies at Pechanga Sports Arena on July 15, 2022. In true Olympic fashion, athletes connect at the OC in the Athlete Fun Zone (modeled from the Olympic Village), walk in an Athlete Parade representing their sports, and enjoy live entertainment. Opening Ceremonies is open to all spectators with tickets available for purchase.
