Never a Dull Moment: Here’s Why

If you have never attended FreedomFest, you are in for a treat! FreedomFest is an intense three and a half days, and it's different from any conference you have ever attended. Where else can you attend yoga in the morning, listen to world-renowned speakers on finance or geo-politics after breakfast, choose from among a dozen breakout sessions with the world’s brightest thought leaders in the afternoon, watch a movie (and meet the director) throughout the day, judge the contestants in an entrepreneurs’ Pitch Tank, and end the day with karaoke? There’s never a dull moment at FreedomFest. In fact, some attendees complain that we have too much  going on at once–it’s so hard to choose which breakout session or film to attend! But never fear– we record all the speeches, panels and debates. (To purchase recordings of previous seasons, go to No other conference in the world offers these opportunities to learn, network, debate and honor great books, great ideas, and great thinkers.

After the first FreedomFest, noted author and philosopher Nathaniel Branden told the audience, “I feel an electricity here I have not felt in years.” And Alex Green, director of the Oxford Club, recently told me, “I still consider FreedomFest the best conference I have ever attended.” John Mackey, founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, says, “I wouldn’t miss it for the world.” Co-ambassador Steve Forbes agrees, and attends all three days, including the closing night banquet and dance.The producer of C-SPAN Book TV has filmed FreedomFest every year, telling us she loves the format and looks forward to the next festival. We hope you will join us too.
