Concept

The TAFISA Games are a spectacular event that brings together colour, dance, sports, culture, peace, friendship and fun. The Games festival offers a voyage of discovery around the world, because the delegations from around the globe will show their traditional Sports and Games (TSG), as well as unique and interesting modern sports (extreme, beach and new sports are just some examples).

The TAFISA Games typically attract up to 50.000 participants and visitors from up to 100 countries, and has often been under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Concept

The principal objectives of the Games are:

- Promote Sport for All and physical activity participation,
- Safeguard and promote Traditional Sports and Games and therefore World Intangible Heritage,
- Encourage cooperation between nations
- Provide experience-sharing opportunities

The TAFISA Games typically include, during a week, demonstrations, friendly competitions, cultural events, shows, conferences and expos. An event not to be missed.

The next TAFISA Games will take place in 2020, in Lisbon, Portugal.
