The Festival

The Festival del Sole is the biggest international “Gymnastics for all” event in the Mediterranean area.

For a whole week, the city of Riccione—the Italian holiday capital—turns into a huge stage where more than 5,000 athletes from around the world perform at their best.

Floor exercises and aerobics, acrogym and acrobatics, rhythmic and artistic gymnastic, classical and modern dance, hip-hop and funky; these are only a few forms of gymnastics and dances taking place at the Festival del Sole, where there are no limits regarding age or technical levels.

No points, no standings, no judges: at the Festival del Sole the only winner is the pleasure of being together doing gymnastics!

The result is that everyone can take part! To join the Festival you only need to have the desire to perform in front of an ever cheering audience in one of the four arenas on the seafront of Riccione and meet other people with the same passion for gymnastics.

The 15th Edition will take place in Riccione from June 28th to July 3rd, 2020. Registrations will open on October 15th, 2019 on this website.
