Pasadena Senior Games 2024

Join us for the annual Pasadena Senior Games, to take place June-July 2024. We’re excited to carry on this tradition of excellence, good sportsmanship, and opportunity that was founded by Cynthia Rosedale in 1993. Events take place primarily in the Pasadena area. Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals will be awarded in 5-year age categories for each event.

We are securing venues and officials and expect to announce the complete Pasadena Senior Games schedule by February 20, with registration opening on March 21.  Please check back for more information.
