What is TEDxAsburyPark?
TEDxAsburyPark (formerly TEDxNavesink) is the largest and highest-rated TEDx conference on the east coast, set on the stage of the legendary Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ. Our volunteer-based organization sponsors a series of events throughout the year dedicated to education, community, innovation, and “ideas worth spreading” and an annual conference in May.
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 annual conference, which is centered around a common theme. Our efforts culminate in a stimulating day of nonfiction theater when we discover and curate more than 25 speakers, entertainers, and artists who share their stories, ideas, and music, sparking deep discussion and community connections.
TEDxAsburyPark is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community and the world.
