California Freethought Day combines the fun and atmosphere of a fair with the education and activism of a conference. We encourage freedom of speech and thought, civic engagement, enthusiasm for science, social justice, and the separation of church and state. It's a festival of freethought... and it's FREE!

We'll have speakers and live entertainment, an authors' panel with Q&A, and more!

Join us on Sunday, October 13, 2019, for engaging speakers, live entertainment, an authors' and podcasters' panel, door prizes, and more!
