Something really unique is happening in Bergamo. And for the sixth time! The 6th edition of the Hide-and-seek World Championship will take place on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of September, among the trees and the meadows of Loreto Park.


The world’s most beloved game, the funniest, the only one able to unify people from all over the world! 45 teams are going to compete to win the precious Golden Fig Leaf: some exceptional players are going to hide them, the American football players from Bergamo Lions team. During a whole weekend, Loreto Park will become a playing field, thanks to the installation of numerous artificial hiding places (along with the natural ones).

An engaging play-by-play and a hidden (of course) DJ will follow both the audience and the players!

At the end of the competition stages, the park will be filled with music: on Saturday, three renowned electronic projects from Bergamo will perform on stage, while on Sunday don’t miss the “Juke Box Umano” exhibition!

We also have another big surprise for you: enjoy the Elav Beer Run Cup, a race combining hop and sport in an obstacle course, thanks to the beer kegs of “Birrificio Indipendente Elav” brewery, which will also take care of the food & beverage service.

The event has been created in 2010 by CTRL magazine and aims to be an invitation to go our and live our city all the year long, except for the hide-and-seek day, of course. An opportunity to enjoy this genuine and beautiful sport, hoping to see the hide-and-seek game in the Olympic disciplines list at Tokyo2020!
