The official date and place of birth of the Games is considered to 582 BC, Greece. Together with the Olympic, Delphic (early name – Pythian) games were banned more than 1,600 years ago and was revived only in the early XX century: from 1927 to 1930 in Greece, there was the Delphic festival, which has become a complete analog of the ancient Pythian games. However, the Second World war was forced to temporarily stop holding the Higher forum of arts.

Work on the revival of the Delphic games was continued in the 70-ies of XX century in the Soviet Union and took place in the framework of the implementation of the creative activities of youth organizations. The experience was one of the prerequisites for the establishment of a National Delphic Council of Russia (VAT Russia) and to develop the modern format of the Delphic games.

In the Russian Federation for the Delphic games are held since 1999. Since 2009, in collaboration with the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO and the Committee of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on science, education and culture is promoting the Games as the Russian initiative. A new stage of development of the event began after the decision of the National coordination Council for supporting young talents of Russia from 30 October 2014.

In 18 categories took part 938, and the jury included representatives of 13 countries.
