IF Events happen throughout the year and across the state. Like the main IdeaFestival® held in Louisville each fall, these are live events that promote innovation, curiosity, discovery and disruptive thinking as a means toward designing novel solutions to important challenges in science, the arts, business, education, technology, design, etc. Much of the relevance of IdeaFestival is derived from its emphasis on discovering the connections and intersections that emerge between different areas of knowledge, ideas and experience. These events help promote this relevance before, during and after IdeaFestival each year.

Separate registration required. Watch here for details and additional events. Events in
Red River Gorge, Ashland, London, Aerospace, Owensboro
are all in partnership with the Kentucky Innovation Network.
