The National Games of Colombia, known in Spanish as the Juegos Deportivos Nacionales, is the premier multi-sport event of Colombia at national level. The first instance of the event was organized in 1928 and for several years it took place at irregular intervals of time. The Colombian Sports Institute (Spanish: Instituto Colombiano del Deporte) took charge of the organization of the games in 1968. The event has been held regularly every 4 years since 1988.
Valle del Cauca has been the most successful department in the history of the national games (7 times), followed by Antioquia (6 times) and next Bogotá (one time).
