Welcome to the website for the Danish Bridge Festival
The Danish Bridge Festival will take place from 5th - 14th of July 2019
The festival is for all bridge players current and new comers.
We will have a lot of exciting bridge related events to offer you during these 2 weeks in the summer period:
- Drop-in tournaments every day
- Danish Championship Finals
- Introduction to bridge
- A variety of courses
- and a whole lot more
Everyone can participate in the drop-in tournaments. There is no need to pre-register! All you need is to show up and purchase your ticket in the information booth, find your seat at the table – and you are in. We play in seeded rows in all bronze tournaments, but we will guide you, so you are seated correctly. If you don’t have a partner to play with already – please arrive to the information booth approximately 30 minutes before the tournament begins, so we will have time to match you with at partner.
All bronze and silver tournaments are drop-in tournaments, so you will have plenty of opportunities to play some cards.
