The Delphic Games - Sister of the Olympic Games

By reviving the Delphic Games the International Delphic Council revives one of the most outstanding events of ancient times. For almost 1000 years, in ancient Greece the Delphic Games were considered one of the most important festivals and were held one year prior to the Olympic Games. While the Olympic Games were sports competitions, the Delphic Games focused on arts and cultures. They had such a high priority in ancient times that even wars and conflicts had to stop during the time of the games.

The Delphic Games are a world wide stage for bringing together arts and cultures from all countries of the world. Delphic Games and Delphic Youth Games are held every four years, at alternating places.

As fire is the symbol of the Olympic Games, water is the symbol of the Delphic Games. Prior to the games it is ladled at the castalian source in Delphi, on the south side of mount Parnassos.
