Olympic Celebration, 25th anniversary celebration activities

Saturday, August 7, 2021

A celebration and fundraising event for the 25th anniversary of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games and the lasting legacy that is Lake Lanier Olympic Park.

Olympic Celebration evening event at Lake Lanier Olympic Park

This is a ticketed event. The five Olympic rings represent the five regions of the world: Europe, Africa, The Americas, Asia and Australia. Beginning at 6 p.m. attendees can walk through the rings, sampling food, beer, wine, entertainment and culture of each region. After experiencing these Olympic memories, stay for one of Atlanta’s top party bands, “We’ve Got the Beat,” and finish the night with a grand fireworks display.

This event kicks off fundraising for the next phase of LLOP renovations. Individual tickets cost $100. Sponsorship/table packages range from $750 to $1,500.

Also part of the Olympic Celebrations, participate in the Porch to Torch 5K that starts at 8 a.m. at City Park in Gainesville and will follow much of the course of 1996 local Olympic torch runners. Enjoy a mini-Olympic village and interactive exhibits after the race. More information and registration.
