We'll have to wait two years after the Beijing Winter Olympics closing ceremony until the next Olympics, the 2024 Paris Summer Games.
The 2024 Paris Olympics is already promising quite the spectacle, with an opening ceremony on the Seine River via flotilla, and beach volleyball in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.
Plus, for the first time, break-dancing will be an Olympic sport.

The next Olympics will be held in Paris, which previously hosted the Olympics in 1900 and 1924.
After Paris, the next Winter Olympics will be held in Milan, Italy, in 2026.

The Paris Olympics will be held from July 26 to Aug. 11, 2024. The opening ceremony is scheduled for 8 p.m. Paris time on July 26, with athletes arriving for the parade of nations as a 162-boat flotilla, with spectators able to watch from the banks for free.
What's new in the 2024 Olympics?
One exciting update for 2024: for the first time, the Olympics will include break dancing, also known as breaking. Skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing will also return after debuting at the Tokyo Summer Games.
Missing from the 2024 Olympics will be baseball and karate. Baseball returned as an Olympic sport in Tokyo after a 13-year absence, but was removed again from the Paris schedule.

Skateboarding will take place at the Place de la Concorde, equestrian events at the Château de Versailles.
