On 1 February 1958, the inaugural Festival of Sport (hereafter FOS) was held at Queen Elizabeth II Youth Centre in Mong Kok. The Festival was co-organized by the SF&OC and 11 sports associations. The Opening Ceremony kicked off with a music performance by New Method College. American World Women Badminton Champion Margaret Varner Bloss was also invited to perform at the Festival. On 23 February, the outdoor events of the Festival were held at the Hong Kong Government Stadium.
