Some of the biggest events from the games will be played on a big screen as part of a special Olympic Community Live event held in Kidwells Park between July 27 and August 12.
Town centre manager Steph James said: "The event is open to everybody. Families are invited to bring their own picnics and people working nearby can come during their lunch breaks to enjoy the games.
"We're hoping the event will really get everyone into the spirit of the games."
She added there will be a party feel in the park during the opening and closing ceremonies and movies will also be played in between events.
Sports and community groups will also be on hand to give people the chance to have a go at different sporty activities.
The event is sponsored by Sytner BMW in Bath Road and the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust, which has donated £10,000.
Trustee Peter Sands said: "Not everybody has been lucky enough to get tickets to the Olympic Games so this is a great way for the community to be able to experience and enjoy them."
Anyone wanting to sponsor or get involved with the event can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
