Beijing will hold the inaugural Olympic Cultural Festival from September 21 to 30, the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2008 Olympic Games (BOCOG) said here on Thursday.

The ten-day long festival will feature exhibitions of the Olympic emblems and posters and a series of mass activities in the Chinese capital city, Sun Weijia, deputy director of BOCOG's Media and Communications Department, told a press conference.

Meanwhile, scholars and experts from home and abroad will attend symposiums on Olympic Games image design and cultural innovation, torch relay, Olympic education, and utilization of digital technology for the Olympic Games.

"The festival is aimed at showcasing the colorful and profound Chinese culture, boosting the spread of Olympic spirit in China and promoting the concepts of 'Green Olympics, High-tech Olympics and People's Olympics'," said Sun.

The Olympic Cultural Festival will be held annually in the following five years before the 2008 Games, he added.
