The Arnold Classic and Arnold Sports Festival organizers have announced the bodybuilding competition side of the event will be returning this September, while the sports festival won’t be back until next year. The Arnold Classic will be taking place on September the 25th, two weeks before the prestigious Mr. Olympia contest goes down in early October.
From what we can tell, there will not be any convention at the Arnold Classic in September, only the bodybuilding competition with several classes taking the stage. There will, however, be an expo portion to the Arnold Sports Festival that, as mentioned, is returning in 2022 from March 4th to the 6th, around the time it would usually happen before the pandemic.
Both this year’s Arnold Classic contest and next year’s return of the Arnold Sports Festival will be going down in Columbus, Ohio, as per usual, with more information on both events available at arnoldsportsfestival.com.
