The 2021 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships will be held in Kitakyushu, Japan from October 18–24, 2021. The competition will take place at the Kitakyushu City General Gymnasium. It will be the third time that Japan has hosted the event, following the 1995 and 2011 editions.

The competition was originally scheduled to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, before the Danish Gymnastics Federation withdrew from hosting in July 2020.[2] In November 2020, the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique announced Kitakyushu as the replacement host city for the same dates.[3]

Although the World Championships are traditionally not held in Olympic years, the postponement of the 2020 Summer Olympics caused the 2021 event to fall during the same year.[4] The last time the Olympics and the World Championships were held in the same year was in 1996.[5]
