Libertopia’s mission is creating a worldwide movement of individuals dedicated to the ideal of voluntary societies premised upon mutual respect for each person's dignity and sovereignty.

Humphreys was the site of two of Libertopia's most fun and memorable festivals in 2011 and 2012. It offers a unique experience with its outdoor concert venue and meeting rooms overlooking the waterfront and the marina.

    Since the last Libertopia festival in 2014, the liberty movement has grown exponentially, and the Internet continues to connect like minds as never before. We’ll be attracting new people, and, as ever, we’ll have great speakers on many different tracks, impactful vendors, an authentic interaction between attendees and speakers, live music, parties, and more.

    While event organization and planning continues, Libertopia 2018 will feature familiar exploration tracks, including:

        Foundations of a Free Society
        Entrepreneurship, Wealth Building, and Investing
