About Us

At The Good Games, we take pride in hosting an Olympic-style festival that celebrates the spirit of sport. With an athlete’s village vibe for both competitors and the community, our festival goes beyond the competition to offer a vibrant and inclusive experience for everyone. From thrilling athletic events to engaging activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and be part of the excitement. Join us for a truly memorable celebration of sports and community at The Good Games.

We built the games to be a celebration of health, wellness, and sport for life. More than a tournament or competition, we wanted to create a movement. One that inspired athletes to become better versions of themselves in a fun and inclusive environment.

The last few years have presented a lot of challenges. Challenges that forced us to pivot, adapt and grow. Through that growth, our vision has become clearer and our mission more focused. 1. To host athletes of all levels from all over the world at Canada’s Biggest Multi-Sport Festival, and 2. To motivate former and would-be athletes to Get Out of their comfort zones and inspire them to Out Do themselves on a regular basis.

Great to see that it was for community, and not just athletes; I was able to bring my family, and we could all enjoy ourselves, even when I was not competing.
