Naadam  "games" is a traditional festival in Mongolia. The festival is also locally termed "eriin gurvan naadam" (эрийн гурван наадам) "the three games of men."

The games are wrestling, horse racing and archery, and are held throughout the country during midsummer.

Women have started participating in the archery and girls in the horseracing games, but not in Mongolian wrestling.

Naadam is the most widely watched festival among Mongols, and is believed to have existed for centuries in one fashion or another.

Naadam has its origin in the activities, such as military parades and sporting competitions such as archery, horse riding and wrestling that followed the celebration of various occasions including weddings or spiritual gatherings.

It later served as a way to train soldiers for battle. Now it formally commemorates the 1921 revolution when Mongolia declared itself a free country.
