Off The Rook!!! 9 Queens 9th Annual Chess Fest
Chess Fest is an annual, family chess festival held in the heart of downtown Tucson at the Hotel Congress. In contrast to traditional chess tournaments and events, the Chess Fest has something for everyone, regardless of age or chess experience. Activities include: beginner chess lessons, pick-up chess games, face painting, chess simultaneous exhibits, music and a giant chess match played on a life-size board. This year we are pleased to have FIDE Woman Candidate Master Claudia Muñoz as our special guest! 25 guests will have the opportunity to play Claudia in a simultaneous exhibition game inside of the Historic Hotel Congress. To see photos from previous Chess Fests please visit our media library.
Claudia Muñoz credits her success to “Persistence”,Tenacity, and Discipline”, qualities that have earned her numerous accolades on both the National and International chess scene.
