This is My
City Sports
& Cultural Festival

This Is My City festival is an annual event that celebrates the commonwealth community of Birmingham through food, sport, and music. This Is My City, Your City, Our City and we are inviting the world to come, taste, and join in to what we have to offer!
The second city is a minority majority and the success of the migrant community and the evolution of their cultures into a British society has moulded the city to what it is today. The festival began in 2019 with the pre Knock Down Games a celebration of the key themes of commonwealth culture at Alexander Stadium one day prior to construction for the B2022 games. In 2020 due to the pandemic we migrated the festival to a digital platform in which was a great success as our first ever This Is My City Digital festival. This was followed up in 2021 TIMC fest has a combination of both a digital and the 1st ever Global Black health Matters Summit, a programme backed by the Michelle Obama Foundation. This year we are celebrating the recovery of Birmingham and the forthcoming Commonwealth Games 2022, with an action packed Commonwealth inspired sports festival, food and taster activities and then finish with a spectacular premiere of the film documentary Queens of the Commonwealth.
