FreedomFest 2022 meets Wednesday July 13 – Saturday July 16 at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
Plan to arrive in time for the opening festivities Wednesday afternoon. We will begin conference events at 1pm with a series of stimulating and intellectual sessions designed to “prime the mind.”
We recommend staying at least until Sunday, July 17 so you can attend “Super Charged Saturday” sessions and if you have tickets to our fabulous Farewell Reception & Banquet on Saturday, which features live entertainment, special guest speakers, the Anthem Film Awards, music & dancing with Good Vibrations, a Beach Boys cover band, and a full three-course gourmet dining experience.
During the conference dates of July 13 through July 16, there will also be multiple evening social events at the conference and around the Strip.
The FreedomFest registration counter will be in North Concourse at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. Signs and volunteers will be on hand to direct you.

Use the Official Agenda Guide you will receive when you check-in to read through the full schedule of events, including all the sessions, exhibitors, receptions, lunches and films.
We encourage you to install and use the free app (available in early June) or your printed Agenda Guide to highlight which sessions you’d most like to attend each day and see the latest updates. All seating is unreserved, first-come/first-served.
All FreedomFest sessions and the Exhibit Hall will be located in the convention meeting space at The Mirage Hotel & Casino.
We’ve also included book signings with the authors of 2022’s most important books in the exhibit hall during coffee breaks and during the Welcome Reception – come meet our authors!
Add our special event breakfasts, luncheons, and receptions including the Farewell Banquet on Saturday night.
Don’t miss our “Super-Charged Saturday” sessions! We’ve saved some of the best for last. We’ll get you energized with free energy drinks and snacks (while supplies last) when sessions start Saturday afternoon, and we’ll award randomly selected attendees in sessions and films with special prizes, including silver dollars, merchandise and more!
We work year-round to add speakers and content to FreedomFest. As each speaker and title is confirmed, we update our website. The full conference agenda will be posted online in June.
We suggest business or business casual for all conference sessions. The Farewell Banquet is business-formal or cocktail dress.
Please note that the conditions indoors may feel chilly for some, but warm for others – we always get comments that it’s both, at the same time! Please dress with layers so you will be comfortable.
Temperatures outdoors in Las Vegas will be dry and hot, most likely 100 degrees adn above.
Please sign up for your registration pass and any special events (VIP breakfasts, lunches, receptions or the banquet) through FreedomFest.
Please sign up for your accommodations through our booking portal with The Mirage (launching in October 2021).

While there is no specific age restriction, FreedomFest is geared toward older students and adults. We do not have any programming for young children. We plan to have a full track of high school and college aged appropriate programming this year.
Choice reigns supreme at FreedomFest, and attendees often face the dilemma of two sessions at the same time that look appealing! If you are attending the conference with a guest, we suggest splitting up and going to the two sessions separately….it gives you great catch-up conversation when you meet back up for coffee, lunch, or dinner at the end of the day!
We also record all sessions at FreedomFest and make those sessions available for purchase – either individually or the entire conference collection. See the audio sales at the Registration counter in the Exhibit Hall before the conference concludes.
All conference sessions are unreserved, first-come/first-served seating. Special event breakfasts, lunches, and the Farewell Banquet are restricted to ticket holders, but are still unreserved seating, except for the VIP tables at the banquet and head tables at VIP events.
There will be an attendee breakfast in the Exhibit Hall available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings, as well as coffee breaks throughout each conference day.
There are several eateries at The Mirage, as well as several sponsor or VIP lunches available.
At The Mirage, we recommend the following restaurants:
Anthem Film Festival screenings take place at the convention meeting space at The Mirage along with FreedomFest.
Access to the Anthem Film Festival is included in all FreedomFest registration passes.
“FreedomFest After Dark” is just as much fun as FreedomFest during the day. Choose from:
World-famous Las Vegas Strip restaurants
World-class Las Vegas shows and concerts
Anthem Movies at 8pm
Sponsored and Paid Receptions (see your agenda for details)
Each day starts with a complimentary continental breakfast in the Exhibit Hall at the convention meeting space at The Mirage.
