The Show-Me STATE GAMES is an Olympic-style sports festival with more than 40 sports for all ages and ability levels. In addition to the summer games, the Show-Me STATE GAMES offers events throughout the year to promote health, fitness, family and fun. This summer the GAMES are celebrating two milestones. The 30th anniversary of the summer games and the 20th anniversary of the Missouri State Senior Games.
Torch runs have taken place across the state to help raise awareness and excitement for this summer and there is still time to sign up as an individual or team. Plus, the GAMES is also looking for volunteers, which is another great way for you to get involved.
