Serving all Fauquier County…
Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

Welcome to TEDxWarrenton
TEDxWarrenton is a self-sustaining, volunteer-run, group with a license from TED to independently organize a local TED event. TEDxWarrenton was established in 2021 for spreading new ideas and connecting a community within Fauquier County eager to grow their impact on the world. We welcome and champion those who want to challenge the status quo and drive change. TEDx is a platform that amplifies the ideas of change makers; a forum to foster new perspectives, and a community committed to challenging its members to be better.
TEDx is a showcase for speakers presenting great, well-formed ideas in under 18 minutes. Why under 18 minutes? This short talk model works, since it only demands the audience’s attention for a short period of time, decreasing the chance of minds wandering or daydreaming about lunch.
TEDxWarrenton 2022 Event
The inaugural TEDxWarrenton was a great success. The September 24 event, held at Highland School, featured 4 sessions with 14 talks. The capacity crowd was presented a variety of topics from a diverse set of speakers. We have updated the program page to host links to their talks after they are hosted on the TEDx YouTube channel.
This event would not have been possible with out the great volunteer team, and the fabulous partners.
