Worldwide Chess Celebrations

Getting Ready Worldwide for Chess Celebrations

On the second Saturday of October this year, we are inviting and encouraging everyone to celebrate chess and organize their own chess-themed event everywhere in the world. According to our feedback, in 2017 you can find more than 100 locations in the world, where on October 14, the 1000 faces of chess will be shown. From Mexico through France to China, countless chess-themed events will be held at the same time as the Global Chess Festival in Budapest. One of the most recent registrations came from Nepal, since "Chess Connects Us"!

Locations can be viewed here.
