Fest22 Festival Sites Smithfield

Festival Sites

To bring even more people together during Birmingham 2022, Festival Sites will be staged in the centre of the host city, in Birmingham neighbourhoods, across the West Midlands and beyond.

The sites will be free to access and will include live performances, entertainment and special events, as well as giant screens where people can gather to watch the sporting action and the Opening and Closing ceremonies.

The Birmingham 2022 Festival Sites will combine sport, culture and entertainment and provide an opportunity to be part of the Games, even if you don’t have a ticket for the sporting action, or if you want to continue your Games experience following a visit to a competition venue.

During the Games, you’ll find our major Festival Sites in two iconic areas of Birmingham city centre. The first will be in Victoria Square and the second at Smithfield, alongside the Beach Volleyball, Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball 3x3 venues.

Across the city look out for our seven Neighbourhood Festival Sites, which are being produced by and for local residents. These sites are bringing the Games experience right to the doorsteps of Birmingham residents.

The neighbourhood sites even include the first ever Relaxed Festival Site at a Commonwealth Games. This will be located in Touchbase Pears in Selly Oak and will provide support to people with complex disabilities.

Festival Sites in the West Midlands and beyond

Ten towns and cities across the West Midlands region and beyond will also be hosting Festival Sites to celebrate the Commonwealth Games.

The ten sites are being produced and managed by local authorities in areas where competition venues are located such as Coventry, Solihull, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Sandwell, Dudley and Wolverhampton, plus Tamworth and Telford are set to join in the celebrations with a Festival Sites of their own.

With track cycling taking place at the Lee Valley VeloPark, the host nation’s capital will also be joining in the celebrations with the ‘Celebrating 10 Years’ Festival Site which will also be located at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from Sunday 24 July to Tuesday 8 August.

Delivered in partnership by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the London Legacy Development Corporation and Birmingham 2022, this site will host two weeks of free fun inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
