Although the event happens in Ulaanbaatar, every village and province celebrates the Naadam festival in their own way.

Just like Brazil’s Carnival in Rio de Janeiro and Germany’s Oktoberfest, our Naadam festival is our most popular and largest celebration here in Mongolia. Because of its significance and exoticness, we see more people come to take part year after year.

During this three-day festival, there are tournaments of three traditional Mongolian sports – horse racing, archery, and wrestling taking place. The festival’s opening ceremony is its highlight with many shows and artists performing,

Almost everyone dresses in their most beautiful and traditional outfit known as ‘dells’, which are created in rich colors. Even though the main event’s in Ulaanbaatar, it is celebrated all over our country.
