Well folks, the biggest event of the summer is almost here! The World Games 2022 will be starting in just a little over a week and we are so excited to welcome all the international athletes and visitors into the Magic City. Even if you’re not planning on going to any of the events, there will still be so much to see in Downtown Birmingham. Whether you’re going down there to eat, or enjoy some of the newly refreshed public spaces like 20th St. N, the people watching will be out of this world (and who doesn’t love some good people watching)?
However, if you are planning on going to the events, it’s probably a good idea to go ahead and plan out which ones you want to go to so you can snag your tickets! Keep reading for a full list of The World Games events below.

However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
