With the aim of “Carry on the Olympic Spirit and Build a Better City”, this year's Sports and Cultural Festival will be held to inherit and carry forward the valuable intangible wealth left behind by the Olympic Games, amplify the effect of “Healthy China and the Olympic Games”, promote the development of Olympic culture, and spread the beauty of “Dual Olympic City” far and wide through the “Dual Olympic Camp” and “Sports and Culture Festival Mass Sports Event”. The “Dual Olympic Camp” includes more than 10 activities, such as Olympic-themed camps, Olympic Songs Concert, Olympic Collection Display, Sports and Cultural Goods Exchange Market, Challenge 9'83", Challenge 20.58m, Olympic Badge Exchange Bazaar, Children's Sports Puppet Show.


The opening ceremony of the festival will be based around three chapters: “Meet - Olympic”, “Meet - Beijing” and “Wonderful - City of Dual Olympics”. Through the performance of the flame lighting ceremony, the heartfelt narration of the champions of the Dual Olympics, the display of new Olympic projects and the singing of Olympic songs, the festival will focus on the profound connection between Beijing and the Olympics and create an immersive audio-visual feast for the guests and audience. The opening ceremony of the festival highlights the innovative concept of the “Dual Olympic Sports and Culture Caravan” and reflects the elements of the “Caravan” through the characteristic choreography and stage layout of the venue, which will shape the unique Olympic heritage brand influence for the future “Dual Olympic Sports and Culture Caravan” to enter all districts in the city.


The “Sports and Culture Festival Mass Sports Event”, which is awaited by sports enthusiasts, consists of the “Swimming Challenge”, the “Medal of Growth Junior Triathlon” and the “Women's 10km Challenge” and “International Emerging Sports”.
