the ultimate summit for liberty

Are YOU living your FREEST life? FreedomFest is different from any conference you have ever attended. You can practice yoga in the morning, listen to world-renowned speakers on finance or geo-politics after breakfast, choose from a dozen breakout sessions with the world’s brightest thought leaders in the afternoon, watch movies (and meet the directors) all day, judge contestants in startup competition, and end the night with karaoke! 

FreedomFest is about ALL the ways we experience liberty in our lives – political, financial, social, creative, professional, physical, intellectual liberty, and more.

Featuring Keynote Speaker Mike Rowe

Mike Rowe, the executive producer of such TV series as “Dirty Jobs,” Somebody’s Gotta Do It,” “How America Works,” and “The Story Behind the Story,” will appear in person at FreedomFest.

His mikeroweWORKS Foundation is committed to improving the skilled trades and has awarded over $6 million in work ethic scholarships to over 1,500 men and women. He’s an inspiration and proof that the American dream is still alive.

Meet Your Liberty Heroes in person!

At FreedomFest, you’ll hear from brilliant minds across a wide range of topics – geo-political, economic, financial, philosophical, historical, social, medical and more. Interact with our expert speakers in the Q&A at the end of each session – or meet in the exhibit hall for a candid conversation.

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. 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!
