The Stockholm Summer Games are a popular annual sports event in Stockholm. They take place in late June in Sweden's capital. Matches and competitions take place in around twenty arenas and fields within the city of Stockholm.

The games include soccer (football), swimming, wrestling, beach volleyball, streetbasket, minigolf as well as armwrestling. Stockholm visitors can also enjoy competitions in archery, trampoline, and even inline skating.

Depending on the weather in Sweden, very popular events for participants of the Stockholm Summer Games are the inauguration show and the activity center, along with meeting many others from around the world.
