The World Gymnaestrada is a world-wide, non-competitive FIG Gymnastics for All event held every four years, attracting the largest number of active participants of any FIG event. Participation is for everybody, regardless of gender, age, race, religion, culture, ability or social standing.
The event is organised by a FIG Member Federation, in collaboration with a city and awarded by the FIG Council as stated in the Statutes. The FIG Member Federation awarded by the FIG Council, acts as the organising body, establishing their own organising structure, including a Local Organising Committee (LOC).
The responsibility for the World Gymnaestrada rests with the FIG Gymnastics for All Committee in cooperation with the appointed FIG Member Federation and their LOC. The roles and responsibilities between these parties are specified in the formal agreements established for the event.
Detailed regulations on the World Gymnaestrada can be found on the FIG website www.gymnastics.sport. These regulations are written for both participating and organising FIG Member Federations and can also be used for a national and/or continental Gymnaestrada.
