Hello and greetings from beautiful and hot Las Vegas!
I am in Las Vegas this week to cover FreedomFest. I will be posting overview articles on the days of the convention and hopefully some interviews with various speakers as well. I have wanted to attend this conference ever since I started my journey down the libertarian rabbit hole in college and am very excited to be here.
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.
FreedomFest 2016 will be July 13-16, 2016 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, 3667 S Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109. The theme is “Freedom Rising.”
