About
FreedomFest 2021

The Ultimate Summit for the Liberty Movement

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? Plus, this year, you can choose to join a number of official excursions to world-famous destinations of Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and Deadwood with other FreedomFesters.

why
join us

Big Debates!

FreedomFest is famous for its big debates. We believe in constructive dialogue that give you the facts and then let you decide. One of our most popular events is the annual mock trial. This year we take on the Pandemic Response - did the US approach save lives or destroy them? Plus debates on bitcoin versus gold, racism, immigration, sex work, the future of liberty and much more.

World-Renowned Speakers

FreedomFest invites the best and the brightest thought influencers from around the world to talk, strategize, socialize, and celebrate liberty. At FreedomFest, the speakers are also attendees - you’ll meet them in the hallways, sit with them in the breakouts, talk with them in receptions and hear from them in-person!

Join Liberty Lovers

In a world like today, it’s hard to know if there’s anyone out there who still believes in freedom. Well, there are, and they gather together at FreedomFest for the best four days of the year - an upbeat, progressive and egalitarian gathering of like-minded people for networking, learning, and helping to build the liberty movement!

Anthem Film Festival

The Anthem Film Festival is the only fully-juried film festival dedicated to libertarian principles. This year it takes place at the Elks Theatre, built in 1912 and fully refurbished. Enjoy screenings of short and full-length documentary and narrative films that celebrate freedom, all part of your FreedomFest pass or dedicated Anthem pass!

Tradeshow for Liberty

Meet with major liberty think tanks and non-profits, as well as freedom-oriented businesses, in our exhibit hall. Explore this exciting nexus during coffee breaks, morning breakfasts, book signings, and our new Main Stage 2 with premium programming sessions.

Fun Factor

At FreedomFest we value FUN as well as the serious business of expanding liberty. Join our Saturday Night Farewell banquet and help us take over downtown Rapid City with receptions, parties, karaoke, comedy and more. Plus, this year we feature official excursions to explore the beautiful Black Hills, historic monuments and national sites.
