Who We Are

The Georgia State Games exists to encourage involvement in amateur sports. Created in 1989 as part of the effort to win the bid to host the 1996 Olympic Games, the Georgia State Games administers the annual Georgia Games Championships, an Olympic style multi-sport festival. Known as the “people’s games”, the Championships are open to Georgians of all ages and skill levels. We also administer the District Sports Festival, Sports Demonstrations, Sports Clinics and the Mascot Public Appearance program.
