TEDFest

TEDFest is an opportunity to meet TEDx'ers from around the world while watching the live-hosted TED program in Brooklyn, New York. Exclusively programed for the entire TEDx community, TEDFest joins the best of TED with all that New York has to offer.

About TEDFest

The first TEDFest took place on April 24 - 27, 2017, and was a simulcast experience around the livestream of TED2017, “The Future You”, in the vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood of DUMBO. The event, created exclusively for the TEDx community, was a great opportunity to gather with TEDx’ers from around the world in New York City and enjoy TED talks while taking advantage of all New York has to offer. The talks were held at St. Ann’s Warehouse located along Brooklyn’s waterfront neighborhood of DUMBO that affords unparalleled views of Manhattan.

Attending TEDFest also qualified attendees for the 100+ TEDx license.

Our venue in Brooklyn

Talks will be seen via the livestream at St. Ann’s Warehouse, a theater space that traditionally hosts an eclectic array of dance and music performances. Located close to the waterfront in the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighborhood of Brooklyn, there are countless cafes, art galleries and shopping all within walking distance from the theater. There’s also a nearby park situated along the Brooklyn waterfront with incredible views of Manhattan’s famed skyline.
