The 2018 Ontario Winter Games are the largest multi-sport event in Orillia's history.

The City of Orillia is the official host for the 2018 Ontario Winter Games, taking place March 1 to 4, 2018. Athletes, ages 12 to 18, from all regions of Ontario will compete against their fellow provincial athletes. The Games provide athletes with development and competitive opportunities that will prepare them for national and international sports competitions. It also provides communities, volunteers and everyone a chance to celebrate sport in Ontario.

For the first time, Orillia is hosting the Games and will welcome athletes, coaches, managers and officials from across the province for this four-day event. More than 3,000 athletes, coaches, managers and officials will be participating in 25 different sport events. Events include alpine skiing, weightlifting, boxing, kickboxing, ringette, figure skating, boys hockey and curling and much more.

The majority of the Games will be held in Orillia; however, proud neighbouring local-area municipalities such as Oro-Medonte, Chippewas of Rama First Nation, Gravenhurst, Midland, Bracebridge and Huntsville will also participate in hosting events.
