Nadaam is an annual festival held all over Mongolia in mid-July. The celebration is said to have existed for centuries, but it now officially commemorates Mongolia's revolution in 1921. If you attend, you'll see young men competing in three sporting contests: archery, horse racing, and wrestling. The biggest celebration is held in the Ulaanbaatar from July 11-13, but there are smaller festivals held in all regions of the countryside at various times through the month.
