The Titan Games, Built by The Home Depot isn’t all the Olympic sports, just the most painful ones. The road to Athens for America’s elite boxers, fencers, shot-putters, wrestlers, weightlifters and judo and taekwondo athletes will come to Atlanta June 18-20 in Olympic competition against the world’s best in each of these sports.

This unique mini-sports festival will feature simultaneous action in four “battle zones” on the floor of Philips Arena. Centennial Olympic Park will serve as a backdrop and come alive with music, entertainment, Olympic-themed attractions and additional competition arenas. On its way to Athens, the Olympic Torch will make an appearance in a city-wide Olympic celebration in the park the evening of June 18. The event will also feature two shows by the band Cowboy Mouth.

Tickets are $25 (lower level), $20 (mezzanine) and $12 (upper level) and are available for each of the three sessions.
