The Mongolian Community Association’s “Nadaam” festival is back again this Sunday. For almost a decade, the festival has celebrated the culture of Denver’s 1,500-some Mongol residents.

This year’s festivities will include traditional Mongolian dance and song, wrestling, horse racing, knuckle-bone shooting (think skee-ball + dominos + traditional attire) and, of course, delicious food.

The fun begins at 11 a.m. Sunday, July 10th at James A. Bible Park.

Cash only, BYOChair.

To RSVP, please email mongolianculturecenter@gmail.com.
