TED — Technology, Entertainment, Design — is an international community dedicated to the power of ideas. TED talks are globally broadcast presentation events during which the world’s leaders, thinkers, and doers share their vision, their passion, and their ideas with the citizens of the world.
TEDxFargo is the local manifestation of the internationally acclaimed TED talks. TEDx events focus on their host communities. TEDx events share and showcase the best and brightest ideas. TEDxFargo is organized and staffed by local volunteers. TEDxFargo serves as a catalyst for spreading ideas that can enhance, enrich, and transform our area.

better places in which to live, thrive, and love.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
There is no age limit or ID requirements to enter the event. All ages are welcome!
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We're arranging free off-site parking for you during TEDxFargo because space in downtown Fargo is limited. To get from your parking site to the Fargo Civic Center, MATBUS has agreed to provide 4-day passes to all TEDxFargo attendees for only $2. Claim yours now when you buy your TEDxFargo ticket! The pass will be great for getting downtown to pick up your name badge, take part in adventures and use in the days immediately after TEDxFargo. We'll be in touch about exactly what parking lots you can choose from closer to the event date, so no need to worry about that now.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
TEDxFargo is full of inspiring speakers. We recommend bringing a notebook for notes, a reusable water bottle and an umbrella. Coffee, water, snacks and lunch will be provided the day of the event. We request that there be no flash photography during the event.
