THIS IS AN EVENT UNLIKE ANY OTHER IN SEATTLE SPORTS HISTORY

Our great city has played host to the biggest sports events in America. We’ve crowned champions in football, basketball, baseball, and soccer. We’ve hosted high school, college, and pro athletes from around the world in big time events.

In 2018, over 3000 of the top Special Olympics Athletes in the USA will gather in Seattle to participate in just the fourth-ever Special Olympics USA National Games. The largest group of athletes ever to descend upon the Emerald City will compete in 14 different sports at several top-notch area venues. They’ll be accompanied by 1000s of fans, friends, and family members.

The event is the Space Needle, the Pike Place Market, the Puget Sound, and the Olympic and Cascade Mountains all rolled into one!


 MORE THAN JUST COMPETITION

In addition to great competition, the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games will feature a Fan Zone, Special Olympics Town, Opening and Closing Ceremonies, A 4th of July BBQ and dance, a torch run featuring area law enforcement personnel and more. This is a week-long celebration of sports and the city of Seattle. Join the party!
