Sports and Events
At the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB), we always try to show our visitors how much Guam has to offer. Aside from our warm sandy beaches and tax-free shopping, Guam’s year-round tropical climate and proximity to Asia continues to attract and provide opportunities for visitors through international and local sporting events and attractions in the region.
GVB signature events such as the Guam Barbeque Block Party, Guam Ko'Ko Half Marathon, 10K and 5K, Ko’ko’ Kids Fun Run, Guam Live International Music Festival, United Guam Marathon and the Guam Micronesia Island Fair attract participants throughout world!
In addition to signature events, the Bureau remains committed to identifying, advocating and further developing Guam's sports tourism as a tool for promoting Guam to our visitors, and at the same time encourage the development of Guam’s local events, and more importantly, our local athletes.
Most recently, the Bureau introduced the Sports and Cultural Ambassador Grant program, this program established in 2016 aims at providing financial assistance for Guam’s local athletes and cultural practitioners to participate and represent Guam at off-island activities and events.
