National Chess Day Festival

  • Fountain Plaza, Town Center Virginia Beach, VA (map)

Join us for a celebration of the Game of Kings!  The City of Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads Chess Association present the 4th Annual Virginia Beach National Chess Day, Saturday, October 7th, from 8 AM to 6 PM, at the Fountain Plaza in Town Center.  Free Chess Lessons will be offered throughout the day for those who wish to learn how to play.  National Masters will be on hand for a take-all-comers Blitz challenge throughout the day.  Players can enjoy a game of chess on our giant chess set or explore chess variations such as four-way chess, Plunder chess, the all new Equalizer Dice chess, or a game of Bughouse.  Play casual chess with new and old friends, play in a tournament with sections for players of all ages and abilities (trophies / medals for everyone!), or match your skill against 5-time State Champion National Master Dan Miller in a simultaneous exhibition.
