Connecting Open Minds in Monmouth County

TEDxAsburyPark is the largest and highest-rated TEDx conference on the east coast. Our volunteer-based, nonprofit organization sponsors an annual event each spring dedicated to education, community, innovation, and “ideas worth spreading.”

 Based at the Jersey Shore, we are honored to have over 100 businesses, nonprofit leaders, professionals, students from local universities, and sponsors volunteering their time and talent to plan, manage, and fund our yearly in-person conference.

Our efforts culminate in a stimulating afternoon of nonfiction theater, centered around a common theme and featuring fascinating speakers, entertainers, and artists. The stories, ideas, and music they share spark lively discussion and connection. 

TEDxAsburyPark is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community.
