The Festival attracts people who are committed to lifelong learning; many are at a stage in life where experiences are of more value than things and they enjoy vacations with a purpose. Speakers discuss advances being made in science, technology, and medicine, as well as current issues in a “TED Talk” style format.

The 2023 Festival will take place from April 28-30, 2023 at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn.

We have a remarkable roster of authors and speakers for 2023 with more to come! View the Festival Schedule.
