The rival Prague Chess Festival (14 - 22 June) is still on at the moment, with an announcement due by the end of this month.

Hopefully, it will go ahead this year with numbers reduced sufficiently that the bottom boards in the Open don't have to play in the underground car park.

I got an e-mail from them this morning. It still says the Prague Chess Festival is going ahead, even though the announcement due by the end of March hasn't been made and there's been no updates to the website since the end of January.

On Kevin's link it states on the photo that the "chess part" is complete and by that it looks like they mean the entry form and calendar of events which are listed here. As you can see they have a lot of events lined up including a RainDropChess Open. However, the "game part" will only be updated in May by which I assume they mean the playing regulations and Covid restrictions, if any.

Main standard tournaments for the Czech Tour:
Czech Open Pardubice 5th July — 1st August 2021
International Chess and Games Festival.
Grandmaster open with GM and IM norms, 2 FIDE opens, 4-member team tournament and other side tournaments.

I assume the "game part" means the games other than chess that they mention - "Tournaments in bridge, go, draughts, backgammon, gomoku and other games will take place within the frame of the festival."
