Come and pay tribute to our athletes who make us proud to be Colombian, who bring Colombia to the world stage, and who make our souls vibrate with emotion and patriotism. They are an inspiration to us all and a constant reminder of what we can achieve when we pursue our dreams and persevere until we conquer them.
We invite you to come to celebrate with us, bring your flag, your poncho, your t-shirt, your hat, anything you would like! Do you have a typical costume? This is the opportunity to wear it. We count on you to make this moment great. We will also be having a beautiful booth with typical Colombian treats. Register early and leave your tri-colour mark on September 22!
Si, Si, COLOMBIA!
