What Is AgoraFest?
AgoraFest is a four day outdoor festival and retreat for those who value individual liberty, free markets, non-aggression, and peace. Our festival is located in rural western Wisconsin, in a secluded valley with a spring-fed creek bordering old growth hardwood forest.
Each day you will find lots of interesting and enjoyable things to do, including attending the many exciting workshops and seminars, participating in technology demonstrations, discovering valuable goods that individuals may be willing to trade, sampling delicious food and drink, taking a relaxing swim or innertube ride in the creek, exploring the many trails and abundant wildlife in the forest, or just catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.
In the evenings there will be live musical entertainment, parties and other gatherings, some of which will last well into the morning hours. For families and those that prefer more peace and quiet, there are campsites available far away from the loud folks. Although there are plenty of things to do, you won’t feel pressured to attend anything. Do what you want, as long as it doesn’t harm others.
An Association Of Libertarian Small Groups
AgoraFest was originally conceived in 2013 as a way for the many small groups that regularly meet in Minnesota and western Wisconsin to get together for a larger festival, where they could demonstrate their knowledge and skills and enjoy each others company. While many of the attendees self-identify as libertarian, there are attendees who have described themselves as agorists, minarchists, voluntaryists, humans (and trans-humans), cyborgs, robots, androids, and of course all the colors & flavors of anarchists. You’ll fit right in I’m sure.
