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

Impressive Event

I have been a spreader of TEDx for 2 years now for several reasons. First because I fully embrace the philosophy of TED. In addition, I have been impressed with the quality of the event itself in Idaho Falls. It is a well-organized and smoothly run event. This year I learned more about the speaker selection and training process. It is equally impressive.

Thoroughly Enjoyed

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

I Am Beyond Thrilled

People Need To Know About This

I loved the event! It was affordable and such a great experience. I think more people should know about and participate in TEDxIdahoFalls events.

I Couldn’t Believe It Was Over

I originally questioned my commitment when I discovered that it was going to be a 4 hour endeavor, but when it ended I couldn’t believe it was already over. I felt very enlightened and thought they put on a great show.
