Dumfries has been selected as one of seven venues across Scotland to host the London 2012 roadshow.
London won its bid for the 2012 Olympics in July last year
The event aims to raise awareness of the London Olympics and Paralympics and their impact on communities.
Sports Minister Patricia Ferguson will attend the event, to be held at the David Keswick Athletic Centre on Wednesday, 26 July.
Demonstrations in athletics, football, hockey and power-lifting have been arranged with local athletes.
World curling champion David Murdoch and former Masters power-lifting world champion Bill McFadyen will attend the event.
Ms Ferguson said: "The roadshow will update communities in Dumfries and Galloway about how the London 2012 Games will affect them.
"I hope the London Games inspires Scots to wider participation in sport and physical activity, which benefits health, develops self-confidence and improves quality of life."
The minister will also see some of the work being carried out through the Active Schools programme, which has been running more than 90 activities across the Borders during the summer.
