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

Inspiring And Insightful

I began the event not sure if I’d stay the full 5 hours. I stayed the whole time and it flew by. Every talk was inspiring and insightful. I’ll be back with my wife and others next year. Sign me up!

A Breath Of Fresh Air

Because it is a fabulous event, one of the very best in Idaho Falls. Extremely well organized, the talks are super well rehearsed, and the ideas innovative. A breath of fresh air for me.

Amazing Experience

TEDxIdahoFalls was an amazing experience! It was my first in-person experience with TED and I loved it. I will hopefully be back next year!

It Was Cool

It was cool to come see something like this presented locally.

An Amazing Idea

I think Tedx is an amazing idea in and of itself! People are becoming more aware of another way of life, and without all of us being able to share our words, we may not understand how to try these new ways in our lives. It

Fun Event

Well organized, great mix of topics and speakers. Fun, engaging event.

Can’t Wait For Next Year

The TEDxIdahoFalls talks were amazing. My son and I attended and really enjoyed all the talks. There was a great variety. Can’t wait to go next year.

We Loved It

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

I Was Wrong

This event exceeded my expectations. I love listening to Ted talks via the podcast app. I wasn’t expecting the local event to have as high of calibre speakers and topics as national talks, but I was wrong. I left the event feeling inspired and better informed.

Well Done

This event was very well done. Great speakers and well-organized. It was fantastic having an event like this in our community.
