Chess in the Parks!


About Chess in the Parks:

Join us and other chess players, coaches, and volunteers for an afternoon of Chess in the Parks! We will have chess equipment, clocks, and fun chess variant sets for lending out and we'll have volunteer chess coaches on hand to teach and discuss the wonderful game of chess! Occasionally, we or other local chess groups will organize mini tournaments or other types of chess events.

Covid and Air Quality Safety: Please plan to wear masks and practice all covid safe precautions.  Sign up here for the City of Albuquerque's daily air quality updates.

Food: Usually food trucks will be at the parks as well so you can have dinner.

All are welcome! This event is free! No RSVP is required.
