Gymnastic Festival Network

Three organizers of Gym Festivals in Europe started up a common network to share their information about festivals with the support of ISCA called EGF (European Gym Festival). The aim is to promote the events on a common platform and to increase the number of foreign participants.


What is the aim of EGF?
The European Gym Festival Council (EGF-C) is an organization bringing together the Gym Festival Organisations from across Europe. The founding members are Festival del Sole (Italy), Blume Festival (Spain) and STB GymFestival (Germany). With focus on the European people practicing general gymnastics in their clubs and federations EGF will support the organization and communication of Gym Festivals,
Conferences, Workshops and Health & Wellness Programs. In a first step EGF aims to establish and to promote an European Calendar of Gym Festivals and to support the development of general gymnastics.

Therefore we have also created a website:
