TEDxFargo If

July 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Embrace the uncharted realms of “If”, where the only limit is the extent of your curiosity.

Imagine being transported to a space that feels both strange and familiar—a dreamscape where reality and imagination intertwine. This year, we dare you to journey into the enigmatic terrain of the unknown at TEDxFargo 2024, where “If” beckons the curious, the daring, and the dreamers. In a departure from the conventional, we invite you to step beyond the boundaries of the expected and encourage you to embrace the ethereal, the in-between, and the uncharted.

TEDxFargo focuses on engaging attendees in a world-class experience by showcasing the best of our community. Join us on July 25th, 2024, as our carefully curated lineup of speakers take you on a journey of perpetual curiosity, inviting you to challenge assumptions, question certainties, and explore the myriad “what if” scenarios that dance on the periphery of our consciousness. This year, we consciously choose the path less traveled and invite you to embrace the ethereal, the in-between, and the uncharted.


You can explore our speakers and find additional information on the TEDxFargo website here.


Just as the theme “if” invites us to ponder the unknown, our Curated Dinner add-on experience offers an opportunity to engage with fellow attendees who share a passion for exploration and curiosity. Here’s how it works:

You will be matched with 3-4 members of the community who have also opted in to the dinner experience, with your personalized location shared with you as we get closer to the event. The experience will be held on July 24th, 2024, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. Included in your registration will be your meal, an appetizer to share, and 1 drink, paired with an evening of diverse perspectives and enriching dialogue. Tickets purchased together will likely be split up across separate dinners. Bon appétit!

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 TEDxFargo, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFargo 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.


TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

TEDxFargo reserves the right to use any photograph/video taken at this event without the expressed written permission of those included within the photograph/video for media, promotional, and marketing uses. By registering to this event, you agree to these terms.
