Join us for our free public speaker series. Free admission and no tickets required.
Conversations that change minds, change the world.
For 84 years strong, the Springfield Public Forum has provided local audiences with access to the scientists, artists, academics, and politicians who stand at the front lines of our most-pressing contemporary issues—at no cost to you.
From Alex Haley to Ralph Nader, Cory Booker to Betty Friedan, we bring thought leaders to the Forum stage to explain their work, field our questions, and suggest a way forward. And our public lectures are merely the first step in sparking broader conversations in our living rooms, classrooms, and communities at large.
Join us in cutting through today’s information overload as we get to the heart of the matters that matter most. For upcoming events, see our Speakers page.
