Olympic & Paralympic Day





Celebrate Olympic and Paralympic Day at the U.S, Olympic & Paralympic Museum happening on June 22!

Since 1884, Olympic and Paralympic Day is celebrated worldwide June 23, honoring the birth of the modern Olympic Games. The United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee worked with the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee to join the two movements and recognize the day as Olympic and Paralympic Day.

The day celebrates friendship, excellence, and values, such as fitness and well-being, that sports bring to people worldwide during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. On this day, people are encouraged to get active, experience the joy of sports, and honor the Olympic spirit.
