Chess at the 2021 Vegan Festival

Updated October 7th, 2021

Come along and play chess at the Vegan Festival on the last weekend in October – Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th October – in the beautiful Rundle Park.

We will have a giant set to play with, along with chess sets and boards for casual games and blitz chess. 

And in the Kids Zone, we will be teaching kids of all ages how to play and beat their parents – maybe! 

 

And on the Sunday afternoon, we will have simultaneous displays given by our State Champion Bill Jordan and Women’s Fide Master Giang Nguyen against all-comers.

The cost is $20 per adults to enter the Festival – and there is lots to see and do and taste apart from the Chess and kids under 14 are free!

Many thanks – a fabulous cause to support
