An official program of the International Olympic Committee, Olympic Day, was created with the goal to promote participation in sport across the globe regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability. The Irving-Las Colinas Olympic Day Committee is comprised of over a dozen local and regional organizations, all focused on advancing our community and delivering exceptional opportunities. Under the leadership of the U.S.-Mexico Cultural & Education Foundation, the Committee exemplifies the strengths of public-private partnership, all leveraging their talents and abilities to bring Olympic day to North Texas.
Olympic Day Irving-Las Colinas is open and accessible to the public at large, not just for Irving city residents. For more information, please visit: www.irvingolympicday.com
