Open Chess

Open Chess is held most Sundays 1:00-3:30 pm.  This is an opportunity for  informal matches  with other area players. All skill levels welcome. Free chess lessons are offered during this time to anyone with an interest to learn chess, or to improve their skills.  There is no charge to attend; free will donations welcome.

All chess activities take place in our recital hall, 519 Minnesota Ave NW. Children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information or to sign up for an upcoming tournament, contact us at 218.444.5606.

Headwaters Music and Arts established our chess program in 2016 under the leadership of Caleb Erickson.  Caleb is available private chess lessons, $35 per two hour lesson.
