Due to restrictions and challenges in general with the COVID-19 Pandemic, there will not be an event planned for the 2021 year. We welcome you to revisit some of the videos of awesome talks from previous years.

About TEDxIdahoFalls

TEDxIdahoFalls is an all-volunteer staffed, non-profit organization. Our event relies on the sponsorship of partners and general admission sales. Your ticket purchase helps cover hard costs such as the venue, printing, advertising, and helps us continue to bring enriched dialogue to the Eastern Idaho, Exposing, Exploring and Expanding the minds of our community.

TEDxIdahoFalls is proud of our 53 passionate speakers since our first event in 2014, with over 1,800 people attending our live events, nearly 4 million viewers online, and the dedicated group of volunteers that make it happen every year. We look forward to continue to share Idaho Falls' ideas worth spreading.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxIdahoFalls, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIdahoFalls event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Past Attendee Testimonials

We Loved It

It was our first time and we loved it. We went away with new ideas and great thoughts.

4 For 4

Great speakers, professionally managed. I have attended all four TEDx events in the Idaho Falls area and all have been terrific.

I Give It A 10

Honestly it was an absolutely incredible experience. I loved every minute, even when I was stressed out and terrified, I knew it was such a cool part of life that I’d never regret. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity.

Meaningful Conversations

I absolutely loved attending TEDxIdahoFalls. The speakers all inspired me to have meaningful conversations after the event, and to think a bit more about each topic. I was never bored with any topic and the entire evening flew by. Great job, and great flow! Thanks.

Speakers Were Very Motivating

The speakers were very motivating. I really enjoyed Stephany TaylorSilva’s story about her life and what she has done and is doing to help her over come the battles she went through. I really look up to her, I know if she can do great others like her can do great things also.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the presentations. There was a great variety of topics.

The World Needs More TEDx

It was a thought-provoking and engaging afternoon. Many topics and ideas were presented and it allowed people to connect and communicate with one another. The world needs more TedX in their lives.

Invigorating

It was well done. It was invigorating. I would highly recommend it.

Absolutely Amazing

TEDx IF is absolutely amazing! You can feel true passion. Each year seems to get a bit better even though you totally can’t imagine that it could. The organizers are outstanding.

I Felt Inspired

I had such a great time at this thought provoking event! I wish I would have gone to the prior 3 years. The event was well organized and moved quickly. All the talks were great and I took something away from each one. I definitely felt inspired when I left the event!
