TEDx is bringing back an annual event to downtown St. Cloud on October 14th.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxStCloud, where x = independently organized TED event.

The event consists of talks from local speakers who are experts on their topics. This year's event is titled "Embrace" and will be held at the Paramount Theater. Seven different speakers are lined up to talk and share their ideas worth spreading.
