2021 Festival Dates
The June Aspen Ideas Festival will incorporate four nights of digital programming with new interactive sessions introduced during the day. The overarching theme will be “American Futures,” exploring issues ranging from democracy to science, the USA’s role on the world stage, and inequality.
Closely monitoring public health recommendations, we will make a decision in the Spring about the possibility of any live component to the 2021 Aspen Ideas Festival on our Aspen campus.
Aspen Ideas: Health, which has opened the in-person Festival since 2014, will return in 2021 in an all-new digital format.
The dates for the 2021 Ideas Festival and Aspen Ideas: Health are as follows:
*Aspen Ideas: Health April 27-29
*Aspen Ideas Festival June 27–30
