It's back! This time it’s going to be bigger and better than ever, more activities and more time to enjoy them.
Once again, the city centre will be transformed into a sports haven with a huge variety of activities.
Sports Fest will be held from 13 – 22 August this year, with activities running every day. Sports Fest will take place in Broadgate, Coventry.
The event is free and will feature a wide range of sport, physical activities and wellbeing activities that are suitable for all ages and abilities.
The activities will be led by a range of community organisations and professional sports clubs.
Sports Fest falls perfectly in the summer holidays, with activities running from 10am – 4pm each day.
Sports Fest is a fantastic celebration of our City of Sport 2019 title and another example of an event where the city can show their love and passion for sporting and physical activities.
Taking part in Sports Fest will ensure you have fun whilst getting active.
Councillor Kamran Caan, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Sport, said: “What a fantastic event this is going to be. Sports Fest will ensure that Coventry people will be getting active, and even better, enjoying themselves too.
“It’s important to give people the opportunity to take part in physical activity, but equally important to make sure that those taking part have fun.
“With Sports Fest being longer than a week this year, it gives children even more time to get involved over the summer holidays and it will be a great celebration of our title, City of Sport 2019.
“There will be activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy. I’m excited to see everyone enjoying themselves.”

Vodafone Gigafast Broadband is rolling out across Coventry, bringing broadband speeds of up to 900Mbps using more reliable full fibre along every stage of the connection from the home or workplace. Unlike most broadband services, Vodafone Gigafast Broadband uses a pure optical fibre network to transmit data and high-definition video instead of old copper-based telephone cables.
