The Largest Liberty
Event in the World

Since 2007, FreedomFest has been the leader in the liberty movement to bring together thousands of people committed to freedom – concerned citizens, educators, professionals, business leaders, filmmakers, politicians, celebrities, policy makers, and now, YOU!

“Great Books, Great Ideas, Great Thinkers”

FreedomFest is the one place you can come to meet other passionate supporters of liberty, meet your liberty heroes, engage with the most important liberty organizations and make a difference in the future of liberty. The Washington Post billed us “the world’s largest gathering of free minds.” Be part of it all, at FreedomFest.
