Join us for the most exciting event of the summer!

Special Olympics Minnesota athletes have been preparing for Summer Games for months, and it’s finally time to show off their skills. Over the course of three days they’ll compete in sports like track & field, gymnastics, basketball and swimming. They’ll hang out with family and friends, participate in Healthy Athletes, dance the night away after Celebration Ceremonies — and win some shiny medals!

Summer Games is FREE and open to the public!
Come cheer on our athletes, enjoy some great food and entertainment, and find out what Special Olympics is all about!
