Join us in Las Vegas July 11 - 14, 2012
Once a year thousands of freedom lovers from around the world gather together to learn, network, discuss, debate and celebrate liberty – or what's left of it!
Join us July 12 – 14, 2012 for over 200 sessions on politics, the economy, philosophy, history, geo-political events, finance & investments, science & technology, art & literature, healthy living, music, religion, you name it. There's definitely something for everyone! From a Global Economic Summit, a Financial Freedom Seminar to 7 Big Debates (including "Wall Street on Trial") and a Film Festival - FreedomFest is known as a focal point for freedom lovers and the trade show for liberty. Don't miss out!
Here are just a few highlights of what we have planned for this year's big show:
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano (Fox News libertarian judge) is back by popular demand. He will bring you up to date about the latest assault on our liberties and our rights, and what we can do about them. Last year his private VIP luncheon sold out, and he has agreed to do it again. (Note: Judge Napolitano's private VIP luncheon is limited to only 100 hundred attendees: If you want to attend, please call Tami Holland immediately at 1-866-266-5101. His remarks will be off the record—no recordings will be allowed so he can speak freely to attendees about what's really going on in Washington, New York, and at Fox News. Steve Forbes will introduce the judge.)
Steve Forbes will return this year with: "How to Find Freedom in an Unfree World: Why This 2012 Election Will Make a Difference!"
Top Panel with John Mackey, Yaron Brook, Steve Forbes, and Marty Cummins on "Creating a New Brand of Capitalism in the 21st Century." Plus an encore of John Mackey's ever popular session, "Living Healthy, Wealthy and Wise to 100: the Whole Foods Way." We can never get a room large enough!
Mystery Speaker: CNN and CBS 60 Minutes names him "Washington's #1 Power Broker," and Fox News calls him "The Most Hated Man in Washington"—the man who single-handedly stopped Obama's tax-and-spending "super committee" from reaching an agreement in November. His name and topic will be revealed when you register.
David Boaz from the Cato Institute will be speaking. So will Mark Skousen, Alex Green (Oxford Club) and many others,
Our 'mock trial' will feature The Journal vs. The Times as we put "Wall Street on Trial" pitting Steve Moore (Wall Street Journal) against Robert Frank (New York Times), with a judge, jury, and star witnesses Steve Forbes, Peter Schiff, John Mackey, and a spokesperson for "Occupy Wall Street." What will the jury decide? Always our most popular session. (Nationwide TV coverage by C-SPAN.)
Mock Constitutional Convention—another first at FreedomFest. This year we will have special sessions where attendees will be voting delegates to our own Constitutional Convention. The first session will be a debate on the pro's and con's of the US Constitution; in the second session, delegates will propose amendments to the Constitution. If they can muster two thirds majority vote, the winning amendments will be read by the President of the Convention at a general session. There's no extra charge for this special event, but you must sign up in advance.
I HAVE JUST SIGNED UP AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS EVENT.

FreedomFest is an annual festival where free minds meet to celebrate "great books, great ideas, and great thinkers" in an open-minded society. It is independent, non-partisan, and not affiliated with any organization or think tank. Founded and produced by Mark Skousen since 2002, FreedomFest invites the "best and the brightest" from around the world to talk, strategize, socialize, and celebrate liberty. FreedomFest is open to all and is purely egalitarian, where speakers, attendees, and exhibitors are treated as equals.
The Best & Brightest Meet Annually in the World's Most Libertarian City
Since its inception, FreedomFest has met in Las Vegas, the world's most libertarian city. Where else can you see a great show, eat at a five-star restaurant, visit a museum, enjoy the entertainment, or see the lights and sounds of the world's freest resorts and casinos after a long day of intellectual learning and debate? Who should attend FreedomFest? It's open to anyone who enjoys a wide interest in books, art, music, film, and drama in all topics, including science, philosophy, economics, health, sports, technology, business, religion, law, and politics. FreedomFest attracts people of all walks of life and across the political spectrum to learn, debate and honor great books, great ideas, and great thinkers.
Never a Dull Moment: Here's Why
If you have never attended FreedomFest, you are in for a treat. FreedomFest is an intense three days. It's different from any conference you have ever attended. Have you been to a seminar where you were bored by the speaker? Well, there's never a dull moment at FreedomFest, because we offer seven sessions simultaneously, including discussions and debates about philosophy and history; arts and entertainment; public policy and geo-politics; science and technology; economics and finance; law and religion. (For those who wish to attend more than one session at a time, we tape all forums and workshops and made them available for sale during the festival. We sell a lot of audio CDs!) We have separate forums on philosophy, science and technology, art and entertainment, economics, geo-politics, finance, and literature, among others. There's a debate room, where a new hot topic is debated every hour, general sessions where we hear world-renown experts, and a special one-hour time where we hear 6-7 "bright new stars"–up and coming scholars who have something to contribute. No other conference in the world offers these opportunities.
