IdeaFestival ® (IF), a leading celebration for creative thinkers and the intellectually curious, announces a series of affiliate events taking place before, during and after the festival. These independently produced events enrich the IF experience and allow innovative and forward-thinking groups the opportunity to introduce themselves and their causes to the IF community and beyond. Here is a list of some of the events planned for this year in Louisville:

IF Local Food: The Power of Change will take place on September 23rd at the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center. This event is designed to educate and explore the many aspects, opportunities and challenges presented by the concept of local food.
