The World Gymnaestrada is a world-wide, non-competitive event held every four years, attracting the largest number of active participants of any gymnastic event. Participation is for everybody, regardless of gender, age, race, religion, culture, ability or social standing.

Performing is just part of this event, as it is more about the whole experience, the festivities and a feeling of belonging. Proudly representing their countries, adds a slight Olympic feeling to the event. Gymnastics from all over the world come together, reunited after several years, reinforcing international friendships, transcending language and culture differences.
