Judit Polgar Chess Foundation

Save the date! 8 October 2022


We have two pieces of good news.

Let's start with the longer one, shall we?

We will organise the Judit Polgar’s Global Chess Festival in 2022, too! The theme is unchanged, we'll be turning on the lights, but illuminating from new perspectives how chess shapes our lives, showing the game's social, scientific, educational, artistic and sporting connections. As 2022 is the Year of Women in Chess, the spotlights will be specifically focused on them in the themes "Women in Science" and "Women and Chess". We will keep the hybrid nature of the festival, so for those who cannot come to Budapest in person, we will open a “gate” in the online space and provide access to the event.

What's the other news?
Despite our best efforts, we can't yet extend the festival to the entire Solar System, so we'll stay on Earth.
